Tuna Tacos

Rated as 4.5 out of 5 Stars

"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."

  1. Heat oil and butter in a large pan over medium-high heat. Add tomatoes, onion, and garlic. Saute until tomatoes release all their juices, about 3 minutes. Add tuna, salt, and cumin. Saute for 1 minute. Stir in eggs and cilantro; cook until eggs are set, 3 to 5 minutes.
  2. Spoon 3 tablespoons of the tuna mixture onto each corn tortilla. Top each with a slice of avocado, lime juice, and hot sauce.

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.
