Skillet Tuna Melt

I am not a huge fan of tuna but enjoy it every now and then. If I'm really going to enjoy it, it has to be spicy, imagine that, lol. This skillet version of a tuna melt came about because my oven is still on the fritz (hopefully it will be fixed the end of the month) and I liked it well enough to decide to keep the recipe. Loved the veggies in this! Yummm!
12 oz can white albacore tuna, drained
1/2 cup sour cream
1 jalapeno, chopped
1 tsp cumin
1 tsp coriander
1/2 tsp coarse sea salt or to taste
1 Tbsp dried chives
1 small avocado, chopped
1/3 cup chopped tomato
1/3 cup chopped red onion
3 slices of bread
3 slices of colby jack cheese

In medium bowl mix together tuna, sour cream, jalapeno, cumin, coriander, salt, chives, avocado, tomato and onion.
Set aside. Butter one side of a slice of bread and place butter side down in a small skillet. Top with a slice of cheese and 1/3 of the tuna mixture.
Cook over med-high heat until bread is browned and cheese is melted. Repeat with remaining two slices of bread.
Serve and enjoy!

  1. I'm on the lookout for easy meals and this definitely fits the bill! Pinned :)

  2. Another thing we agree on. Tuna is something I eat only occasionally. This is a great weeknight (meaning crazy night) dish. Thank you for sharing, Terry!

    1. Wish I had thought of this when the kids were home. Lots of crazy week nights!
