Special thank you to Chicken of the Sea!

A while back I received a couple of cans of Chicken of the Sea's new type of tuna! It features a no drain, no mess feature! This is great because it saves the mess that always seems to happen when you spill just enough water out of the can to make a mess! I love this new feature! Plus the tuna was very moist and tender.

They also have this new No Drain Tuna in a new flavor I am sure will please any palate! You can find it in Lemon Pepper and Solid White Albacore.

There are so many great recipes for canned tuna as well for tight budgets, from tuna salads, to the basic tuna sandwich! It is always great to have a few cans on hand!!

Thank Chicken of the Sea for the great recipe!

True New Orleans flavor in this delicious dish. A superb blend of simmered zucchini, corn, green peppers in tomato sauce blended with tuna and served hot over cooked rice. A sure crowd pleaser!
