Open-face Bell Pepper "Sandwich"

This is a great way to enjoy lunch, and not miss sandwich bread. There are many variations to this recipe, so use ingredients that you find tasty.


1 bell pepper sliced in half , I like red peppers for this recipe

Mix in bowl:

1 can tuna or canned chicken, or use leftover roasted chicken, and chop into small pieces
2 celery sticks chopped up into bite size pieces
Chopped up marinated artichoke hearts
1 small roasted red pepper sliced into bite size pieces
1 Tablespoon mayo (optional)
Celtic salt and pepper to taste
sliced cheese for topping (optional)

Place oven on Broil  Hi
Stuff bell pepper with mixture and place in oven. Broil for 5-10 minutes watching it carefully. You just want the pepper and mixture to warm up. Top with cheese (optional) and continue to broil until melted and toasty brown. Serve over bed of greens drizzled with Olive oil and salt and pepper

* if you do not enjoy bell peppers, tomatoes are a great substitute. Remove seeds, stuff tomato, but bake for a shorter time. I also top my peppers with avocado when done broiling instead of cheese.
