  • Put peppers into a large pot with just enough salted water to cover; bring to a boil and cook until the peppers are just tender, about 5 minutes. Drain peppers thoroughly.

  • Arrange peppers into a shallow baking dish with cavity-side up.

  • Mix rice, tuna, celery, onion, and black pepper together in a bowl; add 1/2 cup plus 2 tablespoons mayonnaise and stir to coat. Spoon the rice mixture into the bell peppers. Pour water into the baking dish around the stuffed peppers. Sprinkle panko bread crumbs over the top of the stuffed peppers.

  • Bake in preheated oven until the bread crumbs are browned, about 30 minutes.

This was very good, but since we had to cook the rice anyway, we sauteed the onion and celery in a little butter, then added water to cook the rice. To soften the pepper halves, they were put in the pot of simmering rice for a few minutes. The tuna and everything else were mixed into the cooked rice before putting in the pepper halves, to bake with the bread crumb topping. Read More

This is a rather budget friendly meal if you swap out green peppers, however you would lose that sweetness from the red pepper. I would premake the rice the day before to save time. When making again I would add some onion powder, garlic powder, or salt to step up the flavor. Would make it again! Read More
