Quickie Taco! As you might already know, I love fish tacos. I crave fish tacos. And when the heat outside makes every kitchen appliance but the toaster or microwave prohibitive, I turn to the can opener. A can of tuna and a few key ingredients will make four of the finest (and coolest) tacos you’ve ever had. At least in a pinch.
Ingredients for Tuna Fish Tacos:
1 five ounce can/jar tuna (in water)
2 tbsp diced onion
1 tbsp diced jalapeno
1 tbsp chopped cilantro
2 tbsp mayo
1 cup chopped cabbage
1/4 cup diced avocado
1/4 cup diced tomato
hot sauce or salsa
salt & pepper to taste
4 corn tortillas
Notes: Makes four tacos. Some chipotle powder or cumin would be a nice twist to the tuna fish salad. For even more crunch, add some crushed tortilla chips.
Prepare the tuna fish. In a small bowl combine drained tuna, onion, jalapeno, cilantro and a squeeze of fresh lime.
Stir in mayonnaise and hot sauce. Salt and pepper to taste.
Build the tacos. Warm or toast tortillas briefly in the microwave or toaster. Spoon 1/4 of the mixture onto each tortilla.
Top with shredded cabbage, diced tomato and avocado. Serve with lime and salsa or hot sauce. Share and enjoy. And try to stay cool…
