"You can tune a guitar, but you can't tuna fish. Unless of course, you play bass." -Douglas Adams
Chipotles and tuna really go together. The peppers are not too hot and the smoky flavor works great with tuna – and I especially like it for this canned tuna salad. The poblano peppers might be a bit spicy for some folks, so try using green bell peppers instead.
The great thing about canned chipotle peppers in adobo is that they freeze well. Put the individual peppers in small ziplock bags or inside a sheet of clear plastic wrap rolled closed like a tootsie roll. I then put each individual pack inside a plastic container or another ziplock bag as they are quite powerful and will flavor other food – even in the freezer.
