Tuna Pepper Melt

The last couple of weeks, we’ve had temperatures in the 80s & 90s… and I start melting at anything above 70 😦  So I’ve looking for dinner ideas that don’t involve heating up the whole house… even though this tuna melt recipe involves the oven, it’s a short enough time that the house doesn’t warm up.  I liked my half a pepper, but Cody wasn’t much of a fan; until he starts cooking every night, he can deal with it 😉

Tuna Pepper Melt

slightly adapted from Fooducate


  • 2 (7 oz) cans tuna in water, drained
  • 4 tb Miracle Whip or mayonnaise
  • 2 stalks celery, chopped
  • 1/3 c shredded cheddar cheese, divided
  • 2 large bell peppers, halved, with core & seeds removed
  • salt & pepper to taste


  • Mix tuna, Miracle Whip/mayo, celery, salt & pepper in a small bowl
  • Fill each half pepper with mixture & top with cheese
  • Broil on high for 3-5 minutes, or until cheese is melted
