• Tuna, Tomato, and Chile Pepper Sandwich

    November 17, 2010

    If you missed the first two recipes in Sandwich Week, here they are:

    And here’s the next sandwich recipe: Tuna, Tomato, and Chile Pepper! 😀


    The star ingredients of this evening’s sandwich was a green chile pepper. It definitely added a little “heat” to the sandwich.



    • 2 (6-ounce) cans of chunk light tuna, drained
    • 1 (14.5-ounce) can of diced tomatoes, drained
    • 1 green chile pepper, seeded and chopped
    • 2 cloves garlic, minced
    • 1 tbsp lemon juice
    • 1 tbsp olive oil
    • Salt & pepper to taste


    • Combine all ingredients in a mixing bowl and scoop onto the bread of your choice.

    Makes 2-4 sandwiches


    I liked this recipe a lot. It definitely adds a new and interesting twist to a regular ol’ tuna salad sandwich. Mal toasted and melted cheddar cheese on his sandwich, which I highly recommend! He shared a bite with me and it tasted awesome!

    Flourless Peanut Butter Cookies are on the agenda for dessert! 😀

    This recipe is good timing. I’m starting to eat some fish again, and collecting interesting recipes is very important at this point. This one sounds tasty.

    I love sandwich week! I don’t even eat tuna, but I love hearing about the different combos out there. Cool idea :)

    Looks great. I love the added heat—the more the better. And cheese makes any sandwich better.


    Chelsea @ One Healthy Munchkin November 18, 2010 at 8:48 am

    Sandwiches are what I eat pretty much everyday for lunch, so I love these posts! I’ve been needing some new ideas.
