Hey guys! As you know, I’m passionate about quick, easy and sometimes healthy meals, snack and desserts. Today’s recipe is definitely all of the above (aside from a dessert obvi)! I can say that, because I totally made it on a hustle, bustle day where I probably could’ve opted for cereal every meal. I knew we had cans of tuna and an avocado, so I opted for the more protein! 😉
I have been making this since my undergrad years where I used to eat it in spinach salads. I think it’s really versatile, inexpensive and a healthy meal to hold you over several hours! For this particular recipe, I used the tuna in a tortilla as a wrap. Jordan enjoys it in between toast, and like I mentioned earlier, in a salad or on some crackers!
I believe I originally found this recipe on Pinterest (of course), where I thought the idea of mixing tuna and avocado was simply brilliant. Cheap, easy and healthy. So I’ve added my own ingredients of choice to those main two. You can do the same once you read my recipe!
2 cans of tuna
1 large avocado
1/8 cup salsa (okay, I don’t measure- I just pour!)
1 Tablespoon mayo (if you want)
additional garlic salt
Drain tuna, add in avocado, salsa and mayo until blended to your liking. Season to taste. Spread on toasted bread, a salad or in a tortilla. It’s easy to whip up for lunch and save the rest for dinner or another day. This makes 2-3 servings, depending on your portion size. I made it for myself while Jordan was away in El Paso for his night shifts, and it served me 3 times! I personally have enjoyed tuna melts with this recipe, but on a warm day, it’s definitely good chilled!
Hope it’s a blessing to you in a pinch! And I really mean in a pinch! It’s so simple! 🙂
