My daughter-in-law, Lorenia, was born and raised in a small rural town in Mexico. Her and my son Curt, had a fairy tale romance, but that is not what I am writing about today. (maybe another post!)
She introduced some fantastic foods to our family, one of which I am going to feature today…Mexican Tuna Salad. Not only is it a tasty new twist to our traditional tuna salad, it is colorful and nutritious.
Simple ingredients…corn, tuna, green onion, jalapeno pepper, tomato, cilantro and guacamole. You can make your own guacamole, but since I found this Wholly Guacamole, I seldom make my own. Once you taste it, you will agree with me. I find it in the refrigerator section of our local HyVee, next to the herbs and bagged salad greens.
After chopping the veggies (squeeze as much liquid from the tomato as you can) and cilantro, mix it all together with guacamole. You can serve with tortilla chips, but I opt for pita chips since they are sturdier and don’t break as easy.
