Simple Tuna Fish Tacos


Tuna tacos sounds funny, but these are delicious. I threw these together for dinner one night and now they're our favorite! If desired, serve with sour cream, fresh cilantro, and more hot sauce.

12 tacos


  • 1 tablespoon olive oil

  • 4 Roma tomatoes, diced

  • 4 green onions, sliced

  • 2 cloves garlic, minced

  • 2 teaspoons ground cumin

  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano

  • 3 dashes hot sauce (such as Tabasco®)

  • 4 (6 ounce) cans solid white tuna packed in water, drained

  • 1 pinch red pepper flakes (Optional)

  • salt and ground black pepper to taste

  • 12 corn tortillas


  1. Heat olive oil in a skillet over medium heat. Add tomatoes, green onions, garlic, cumin, and oregano; saute until tomatoes are very soft, about 5 minutes. Reduce heat to low. Add drained tuna; gently break into bite-sized pieces and mix in. Season with red pepper flakes, salt, and pepper. Cover and cook until tuna is warmed through, 2 to 3 minutes more.

  2. Stack 6 tortillas on a microwave-safe plate and cover with a damp paper towel. Heat in the microwave until pliable, 15 to 20 seconds. Repeat with remaining tortillas. Spoon tuna mixture over warm tortillas.
