During the pandemic, I am taking taste-bud journeys as I self-isolate rather than physical journeys. Here is my adapted recipe for making a variation of Avocado and Tuna Tapas. It was inspired by discovering a Spanish recipe post by La Cocina de Redondita. A link to her full recipe is included below.
FYI - I did not use two of her ingredients due to my personal taste-preference. I also used some different amounts than her original recipe. This makes 2 to 3 servings for a light lunch or snack.
Conclusion: I found this recipe to be pretty tasty. It was a nice alternative to tuna salad. Little by little, I am attempting to use up the enormous number of canned tuna I purchased at the beginning of the pandemic. Lol!
In addition to Wheat Thins, I found that this recipe was quite tasty served on top of a crunchy Six Seeds Cracker that I made the previous day. See the link below if you wish to view that recipe.
- 1 (12 ounce) can or 2 small cans of solid white tuna packed in water, drained [FYI- I only have the kind packed in olive oil, so that is what I will use.]
- 2 tablespoon mayonnaise
- ½ cup green bell peppers, chopped
- 1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar
- 1 teaspoon garlic herb salt
- 2 ripe avocados, halved and pitted [I am using two containers of mashed avocados instead.]
- Step 1: Cut up frozen bell peppers using a food processor. Naturally, if you have a raw bell pepper, you could use that instead. Since I was using Stir together tuna, mayonnaise, red pepper, and balsamic vinegar in a bowl.
- Step 2: In a microwave steamer, add the cut-up bell peppers. Add the entire contents of the tuna can or cans including the olive oil. Mash the tuna. Stir in the balsamic vinegar, mayonnaise, and garlic herbal salt. Place the lid on the steamer and microwave for two minutes.
- Step 3: Add in the 2 containers of mashed avocado. Mix thoroughly.
- Step 4: Either eat this as is or as a dip on one of your favorite crackers. My crackers of choice were Wheat Thins. Enjoy!
