Course: Main Course
Keyword: bell peppers, easy dinner, keto, low carb, tuna
Servings: 2 pepper halves
  • 1 small bell pepper (any color)
  • 1 5oz can light tuna
  • 2 tbsp diced celery
  • 1-2 tbsp mayonnaise
  • 1/4 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 pinch ground black pepper
  • 2 slices provolone or cheddar cheese
  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees.

  2. Cut the bell pepper in half lengthwise and remove the seeds. Place them cut side up in a small baking dish. You may need to use some bunched up foil to prop them up if your pepper halves are wonky in shape.

  3. In a small bowl, mix together the tuna, mayo, celery and preferred seasoning. I usually just sprinkle with black pepper and garlic powder, but you could also add onion powder or dill.

  4. Top each one with a slice (or two) of cheese. You can also use shredded cheese if that's what you have on hand.

  5. Bake for 12-15 minutes or until the cheese if fully melted and browned to your liking.

Recipe Notes

Red onion and dijon mustard are also common ingredients for a tuna salad, but I personally don't care for either. Feel free to customize to your liking!
