I was soooo leary about this recipe and I was more than thrilled with the results!! I thought that these were a great way to prepare a taco! I have made them at least three times in one week because I find myself craving them. I tried them with canned chicken and that just wasn't as good as the tuna. Great mix of flavors I have also subbed black beans for the olives with great results. I did sub green leaf lettuce for the iceburg and used ortega boxed corn shells but other than that gung ho! Thanks John so very much! Read More

I love recipes that other reviews say they were scared to try but did and it was great. --Stay scared---I don't know what to say. This wasn't inedible but wasn't good. No one in my family really liked this. We used our favoirte salsa but this still lacked something. This might be okay on a hot hot day when you want something light. This wasn't filling nor was it good. Read More

I work at a hospital and we made this salad to sell in the cafe' and wow people really loved it! We did the tuna mix is a cold salad served on chips (more like a tuna taco salad). This salad has great flavor! We have added it our menue! Read More

This was really tasty! I threw it together very quickly approximating amounts and it came out great. Wasn't sure what was meant exactly by "salsa" (broad term) so I used a hot taco sauce which added a nice zing to the flavour. Also tossed in some corn kernels I had on hand. The left over is great sandwich filling! Read More

Just OK! These were as quick and easy to make as Tuna Helper and the result was tastier. Good for a quick meal and probably good for you too however the end result is a tuna taco and that's just not great. Be sure the tuna is very well drained. Read More

While I was preparing this I had pretty much already determined that it was going to be inedible... the salsa/sour cream/tuna mixture looked so odd and unappetizing. However the cumin totally brought all the flavors together and a dollop of sour cream on top was a yummy addition. This was a great quick lunch. Thanks! Read More
