This is delicious spicy tuna. I like to serve these on buttery crackers for snacks, lunch, or appetizers. Adjust spiciness to your preference by adding more or less chipotle peppers to taste.

Used my own homemade ranch dressing and my peppers were quite hot so only used three of them. My son didn't want the Parmesan cheese in his and so I made mine with and left it out of his. My son's tasted much better I love Parmesan but it just didn't mesh well with the chipotle flavor for me so I'll omit that next time. I did add in a chopped celery and that was really a nice addition. My son said it was the best tuna sandwich he ever had. Read More

I really liked the chipotle peppers in this! But all ranch dressing was not very good to me. Also it was too many onions for my taste. I made just 1 can of tuna so I made another batch with mayonnaise in place of ranch and no onions and then I added the two batches together. I will make this again but I will use half ranch half mayo and half the onions. I also added some celery for more texture. Read More

I followed the recipe exact EXCEPT I omitted the dijon mustard (I just happened to be out and didn't know until I was already making the recipe) and I used my own homemade ranch dressing. This was one of the best tuna salads I've made in a while. Read More

Wonderful! I never would have thought of using chipotle in tuna salad. Great way to use up the rest of a can of chipotle in adobo. Thanks! Read More
