I altered this quite a bit. Omitted the peas and added a couple stalks of chopped celery. I take Chipotles in Adobo sauce and chop them up in a little food processor. Take a portion of the mixture and wrap it in a 10 inch tortilla with some shredded cheddar cheese (and hot pepper rings if you want). Bake that in a toaster oven until the tortilla is just crispy. I would never have put the tuna and chipotles together without this recipe! Read More

Quite delicious. I made this as written using the suggested 'more to taste' 2 chipotle peppers. It was a really nice change for tuna salad. We packed it in our lunches one day on a wrap with lettuce and tomato slices and the next day a top of a bed of lettuce as a salad. We enjoyed it both ways. The next time I'm going to add a stalk of celery as we like the crunch it adds to tuna. Read More
