Tuna Fish Tacos 


Canned seafood is ready when you are. It’s a convenient option to fast food, and it’s usually lean, healthful and helpful. Many tins are also interchangeable, so you can change what you have on hand – something you can’t do with fresh seafood. And, the greatest part? You need to look no further than your kitchen cupboard for the beginnings of an excellent dish.

These tuna tacos are a great example! They are delicious and incredibly easy to fix. Oh, guess what? There is no cooking involved except for when you have to warm the tortillas in the oven or in the microwave.

Satisfy your taco cravings while eating healthy by fixing these yummoelicious fish tacos.
Tuna Fish Tacos

Ingredients:

(Dressing)

1/2 C Daisy sour cream
1/2 C Duke’s mayonnaise
2 Tbsp. chopped cilantro leaves
1 Tbsp. minced Goya’s chipotle chile pepper in adobo sauce
1/8 tsp. salt

(Salsa)

3 small tomatoes
1/3 C chopped sweet onion (such as Vidalia)
1/3 C loosely packed cilantro leaves
1 small jalapeno pepper, seeded and chopped Optional
1 clove garlic, minced
1 Tbsp. freshly squeezed lime juice
1/2 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. freshly ground black pepper
Preheat oven to 350 F degrees

(Tacos)

12 small corn tortillas
1 1/2 C finely shredded green cabbage (I used shredded brussel sprouts)
2 cans Starkist tuna in water, drained, excess moisture removed and broken into flakes

Directions:

1. Dressing: In a medium bowl, mix together sour cream, mayonnaise, cilantro, chipotle pepper and salt to taste. You will have approximately one cup of dressing.

2. Salsa: In another bowl, combine tomatoes, onion, cilantro, jalapeno, garlic, lime juice, salt, and pepper. Taste and adjust salt if necessary. You will have about two cups of salsa.

3. Tacos: Divide tortillas into two batches and wrap each in foil. Place in preheated oven and heat for ten to twelve minutes, until warm.

4. Place warm tortillas on a clean surface. Spread each tortilla with about 1 1/2 tablespoons of the dressing. Top with about two tablespoons of cabbage. Add approximately two tablespoons of tuna and using a slotted spoon add about two tablespoons of salsa.
