Tuna Stuffed Peppadew Peppers

Tuna Stuffed Pepperdews

Tuna for Tapas!

The definition of Tapas loosely translates to “small Spanish savory dishes, typically served with drinks at a bar.” My definition is more like “little bites of deliciousness inspired by the Mediterranean.’

Tapas are fantastic and the true essence of Feast and Merriment. They bring people together to share in bites of savory and salty over cocktails. This recipe for tuna stuffed peppadews is ridiculously easy and takes only 3 ingredients! Those 3 ingredients produce a bite that is equal parts sweet, spicy, salty and savory. The pepper dews are both sweet and spicy and they work tremendously well to balance the brininess of the tuna and tartness of the marinara sauce. I challenge you to find another recipe that packs as much flavor with so few ingredients.

I like to serve these with Manchego cheese, olives, and Macrona almonds. Perfect for movie night!
