Subway sub of the month

AdamRichmanJr Mar 20, 2012 12:59 PM

Well, i went and tried the jalapeno n tuna for lunch today. I think its actually pretty good. i got it on italian bread with light lettuce, tomatos, extra pickles, provolone, and a little mayo.

the tuna mutes some of the flavor of the peppers, but theres still enough of a kick to enjoy it. overall, i thought it was a really good sandwich and i'd definalety get it again.

    I'm glad to hear it's good! When I saw the ad on TV I was repulsed because I can't stand jalapenos. I wonder what April will bring...

      Do they just put jalapenos on the sub (an option in my area for all of their items)? I can't quite wrap my head around tuna and jalapenos, for whatever reason.

      Also, the ads absolutely drive me up a wall, causing me to all but boycott anything they're advertising. I just can't get past the ignorance-factor of their word mashups, ie, tasterific! or wondermeltiful, or whatever the hell.

        the way they made it at the store i went to was they put the tuna on the bread first, and then put the peppers on the tuna. after that, then they put the other toppings on.

        I got the sub because of the novelty factor, but it ended up being really good.

        ROFL.... i know exactly what you mean abou the ads. i feel the same way, just say its a good sub and shut up.

          So have we come to the end of the line on sub creativity? Adding jalapenos now makes it a "special"? I'm sure people who normally add jalapenos to their tuna will feel cheated.

            Exactly. I've always added jalapenos to my tuna. Nothing 'special' about it.

              I got it without the jalepenos, because I don't like them, but at least it got me the tuna sub for $5.

            There's an excellent recipe floating around for "Carlos and Charlie's Tuna/Jalapeno dip". It's great! The two do go well together.
