4 Tuna Appetizers

4 No Mayo Albacore Tuna Appetizers! Use these great ideas for tuna that are totally unexpected!

 I’ve always loved tuna!  Tuna salad was a staple in our household growing up and tuna noodle casserole was one of my mom’s go-to dishes for weeknight meals.  Now that I am an adult, I still love those dishes that my mom made, but I also love to experiment too.  Tuna can be used in the place of chicken pretty easily for most dishes, but you have to make sure to get the right kind of tuna.  I decided to try some recipes with Bumble Bee® Albacore Tuna recently and my family loves them.

Bumble Bee Tuna

I’m using Bumble Bee® Albacore Tuna for these recipes because the lighter flavor of the Bumble Bee®Albacore Tuna tastes great in a variety of dishes that would normally be made with other types of meat… like nachos and quesadillas!  Seeing is believing and Bumble Bee® Solid White Albacore Tuna is quality you can see – the moment you open the can.

So  here are some of my favorites so far…

Tuna Nachos!

  1. Tuna Nachos.  This one you have to try!  I made this while I had a friend over and we ate the whole thing.  I used cheddar cheese, beans, tomatoes, Bumble Bee® Tuna and a dollop of sour cream on top of a bed of corn tortilla chips.  Just cook the cheese on the chips in the microwave for about 30 seconds and add the rest of the toppings.  We loved this flavor combo and the Bumble Bee® Albacore Tuna was a great addition.
  2. Flame Grilled Chicken Quesedillas! Serve with smoky chipotle lime crema for the ultimate tex mex dinner idea!

2. Tuna Quesadillas.  Just replace the tuna for chicken in any quesadilla recipe!  The Bumble Bee® Albacore Tuna tastes wonderful in a quesadilla with cheese and pico degallo.

3. Avocado Tuna Salad.  The creaminess of the avocado really gives this salad a nice texture.  Use 1 ripe Avocado, 1 can of Bumble Bee® Albacore Tuna drained, 1 tomato chopped, 1 clove garlic minced and salt and pepper to taste.  Just mash up the avocado and mix it all together until creamy.  Spread on crackers, bread or serve in an avocado boat.

Tuna Tomato Bruschetta!

4. Bruschetta.  It’s a very simple appetizer and it tastes great with the Bumble Bee® Albacore Tuna.  I took 1 cup of chopped tomatoes, 2 Tbsp. of Balsamic Vinegar, 1 can of Bumble Bee® Albacore Tuna, 1 Tbsp. Olive Oil, 2 minced cloves of garlic and 5 leaves of basil minced and mixed it all up.  Then I put the mixture on butter toasted french bread slices.  I think this may be my new favorite tuna recipe!
