This is a tuna taco recipe I created 25 years ago. It is easy, quick, and very tasty. When served with crackers it makes a really good light snack or appetizer. I find that once you start eating them you really can't stop. I like to serve this with a chicken rice. To lighten the recipe, you can eat with crackers.

Made as written and these turned out pretty good. I didn't feel the eggs added anything though which was kind of disappointing. They are quick and easy though so that is always a plus. Read More
