Ingredients

  • 2 Hass avocados
  • 1 5 ounce can Genova Albacore Tuna in Olive Oil slightly drained
  • 1 ½ tsp Cilantro rough chopped small
  • 8 grape tomatoes cut into small pieces
  • 1 Tbs Red onion minced small
  • 3 Tbs sweet whole kernel corn
  • 1 tsp minced jalapeno
  • 1 tsp fresh lime juice
  • 1 tsp sriracha more or less according to preference
  • ¼ tsp minced garlic
  • ¼ tsp cilantro paste optional
  • 1/8 tsp salt
  • 1/8 tsp fresh ground pepper

Instructions

  • 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.
  • Finely dice your jalapeno, tomatoes, red onions, and cilantro.
  • Put tuna in a mixing bowl, and in the finely diced jalapenos, tomatoes, red onions, and cilantro. Add sweet corn.
  • Add lime juice, minced garlic, cilantro paste, sriracha, and salt and pepper.
  • Use a fork to stir it all together, breaking up any larger chunks of the Albacore Tuna.
  • Taste, and adjust seasoning according to preference.
  • Cut open the avocados, and remove the pit.
  • Use a large spoon, and scoop some of the avocado out to enlarge the hole.
  • Fill center with tuna salad mixture.
  • Top with additional fresh jalapeno, or cilantro, or even ranch dressing!
  • Enjoy.
