Tuna Cups & Awards!

I don't know where the original for these are from.  I got it from my friend Julie.  When we used to work together she made these for me.  She was so thoughtful when she made these.  She knew I didn't eat pork so she made sure that she used a separate cutting board.  These were so good that I got the recipe from her.  The original recipe had green peppers and celery.  I never buy celery.  Instead of green peppers I decided to put some green chilli to spice it up.  Everyone in my family loves these.  I don't make them very often because they are pretty high in fat.

I usually make this in a regular muffin tin but this time I used a mini muffin tin.  If you have a very salty cheese you may want to reduce the salt.  One time I bought a vegetarian cheese and I didn't taste it before making these.  They turned out very salty.

Tuna Cups
Adapted from Julie

1 package Pillsbury dough (I used the reduced fat one)
1 tin tuna, well drained
1 hard boiled egg, diced
1 cup cheddar cheese, shredded
1/3 cup mayonnaise
1 green chilli, minced
1/4 tsp salt

Preheat oven to 375 F.

In a large bowl mix together tuna, egg, cheese, mayonnaise, green chilli and salt.  Remove dough from fridge.  If you are using regular muffin tins, divide each triangle into 2 pieces.  For mini muffin tins divide into 3.  Shape each piece of dough into a little cup.  Place in your muffin tin and fill with tuna mixture.  I always spray my muffin tins with some oil because I'm always paranoid that they will stick.

Bake for 10-15 minutes and enjoy!
