Tostadas de atun (Tuna tostadas)

Made the shredded beef tostadas? have some left over? Well here's another thing you can make with those yummy round things..  This recipe is low in calories, low in fat, very refreshing and delicious.. seriously give it a try! I am sure you will love it!


3 cans of chunk light tuna in water
3 tomatoes chopped
1/2 iceberg lettuce chopped
3 tablespoons of mayo
3 large limes or 7 key limes (you want limes not lemons it does make a huge difference)
1 small bunch of fresh chopped cilantro
*optional.. 3 serrano peppers finely chopped.
salt to taste
and of course your tostadas.

chop all your veggies up..
in a large container add the tuna (drain the water out of it first) and mix with the mayo

add the tomato, cilantro first mix it up then add the lettuce and lime juice and mix everything up..

you're done! easy peasy huh??

If you choose to use serranos they look like this..
kinda like jalapenos only smaller...  caution as they are quite hot!  when we were kids my mom used to set some aside for us and the put the serranos in. Chop them very finely or you'll regret it ;)

and the finished product.....

Easiest meal you'll ever make! it also could be taken as a side to a potluck with some tortilla chips instead of guacamole.  Also instead of regular tuna sandwich this tastes delicious between 2 slices of sourdough!

enjoy! <3
