I was recently talking to a group of moms, and realized we all need an arsenal of easy to make, easy to clean up recipes that actually taste good. It is these recipes that keep us from gorging on take out during the day, and then regretting it and kicking ourselves later. Light and healthier meals are sometimes hard to come by, which is why I knew I needed to come up with some.
This Tex Mex Tuna Salad stuffed Avocado is going to be the first addition to that arsenal of light healthy meals that taste good and don’t require much clean up. Tuna Stuffed Avocados are pretty simple to make, and use foods I typically have on hand: canned tuna, avocados, tomatoes, canned corn, some onion, etc.
When I decided to try out this recipe, I started with the basics, then I added in some extra ingredients for added flavor, and before I knew it there was a delicious lunch ready to go, and I only dirtied a cutting board, knife, and mixing bowl to get there.
There is just something about a simple recipe, full of ingredients I usually have on hand that I just can’t get enough of. And who would have guessed it would have tuna??? I did not grow up in a family that ate a lot of tuna, so it wasn’t until I met my husband that I really ate tuna on a regular basis. And it wasn’t for a few years after that that I realized the significant difference in quality available when it comes to cans of tuna.
But when I did finally figure it out, it was life changing. I really like Genova tuna, and used the Albacore Tuna in Olive Oil for this recipe. I love this brand because it is flavorful, and doesn’t stink when you open it. Plus you get bigger chunks of the fish, and can tell it is actually real. You can find Genova Albacore Tuna in Olive Oil at your local Walmart store. And Genova also has Yellowfin Tuna!

- Open the can of Genova Albacore Tuna, and holding lid over the can slightly off center, drain off a little bit of the olive oil off into the sink. It does not need to be drained completely, just enough so it is not runny.
