Healthy Cooking from H-E-B



Quick and easy


Prep Time:

20 minutes

Cook Time:

5 minutes


12 halves


6  fresh large whole  jalapeño peppers

1  c. crumbled  H-E-B Queso Fresco or Cotija Cheese

1/3  c. chopped  red onion

1/4  c. chopped  fresh cilantro

2  Tbsp.  H-E-B Fat Free Sour Cream

1  pouch (6 oz.)  H-E-B Chunk Tuna, drained & flaked


Best to use plastic gloves to prepare jalapeños. Cut off the stems and slice the jalapeño peppers in half. Remove the jalapeño seeds and stems; set aside on a foil lined baking sheet.

Combine crumbled cheese, red onion, cilantro, fat free sour cream and flaked tuna in a bowl; stir to combine. Season the tuna mixture to taste with salt and pepper.

Stuff jalapeño pepper halves with 1-2 Tablespoons tuna-cheese mixture, cover with plastic wrap and keep refrigerated until ready to grill.

Heat gas or charcoal grill to 350°F. Place the stuffed jalapeño halves on a vegetable grilling mesh and grill with the lid closed for 5 minutes or until cheese melts and pepper soften. Arrange the grilled stuffed peppers on a platter and serve.
