Spicy Tuna Rangoon

It was my little sister’s birthday a full on Chinese food night with stir fry, egg rolls, shrimp fried rice, dumplings, and crab rangoon on the menu. As always, when there is a wide variety of cooked dishes to be made at the same time, the kitchen quickly got very hot, and I got very frustrated.

I could only wrangle one little helper into the kitchen that night, and I had him making the egg rolls. While he was working I made the fried rice, and stir fry. Then I noticed the wonton wrappers sitting on the counter….

Oh…right.

The rangoons.

The part everybody was looking forward to the most.

It’s a good thing it doesn’t take that long, I thought. I started getting out the ingredients and I went to the fridge to grab the crab last….

Oh.

Oh no.

No crab……

I frantically looked through the kitchen for anything I could use to substitute from the crab. For a while I was seriously thinking about using Spam. Luckily I noticed a few cans of Bumble Bee® Prime Fillet® Albacore Tuna with Jalapeños & Olive Oil. My helper was about halfway done with frying the egg rolls, so I grabbed the tuna and started working.

Ultimate Cheesy Tuna Pasta Casserole

Who else celebrates Valentines Day with a group of friends?

Every year, me and my girls get together for a home cooked dinner party on valentines day (NO BOYS ALLOWED!) and we all bring a dish. Most of these dishes are skinny, or light, because most of us have just made new years resolutions to lose weight. I always try to focus more on what my body needs, rather than starving myself of something and calling it a “diet.”

I make sure I get a good amount of fat and protein to help my body function properly. This is why I bring this Cheesy Tuna Black Bean Casserole to the dinner party. It provides the essential nutrients,and it tastes great. And I make sure to cook more than necessary, so the girls can take leftovers home with them.

The first time I made it for them, they asked me for the recipe, but I didn’t have one to give them! I had just improvised a casserole using what I had on hand (trying to keep it healthful), and it was really good. Luckily, I had remembered what I did and was able to replicate it and write down the recipe.

It took, like, an hour to name it. We finally decided on Ultimate Cheesy Tuna Pasta Casserole. And I’m stickin’ with that.
