Bell peppers are filled with a tuna and chopped vegetable stuffing mixture then topped with potato chip crumbs. This is a very tasty flavor combination for stuffed peppers. Stick with green bell peppers, or make a colorful presentation with yellow and red peppers.
- 6 medium bell peppers
- 1 1/2 cups cooked rice
- 1 can or pouch (about 7 ounces) tuna, drained and flaked
- 1/2 cup chopped celery
- 2 tablespoons finely chopped onion
- 2 tablespoons finely chopped canned pimiento
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- Dash pepper
- 3/4 cup mayonnaise
- 1/2 cup crushed potato chips

In a bowl, combine rice with tuna, celery, onion, pimiento, 1/2 teaspoon salt and dash pepper. Gently stir in mayonnaise until well blended.
