Here is a super easy recipe to use up tuna. This makes a super easy,
zesty – healthy lunch.
1 Tbsp. vegetable oil
1 onion, chopped
2 cloves garlic, minced
2 stalks celery, diced
1 cup diced sweet green pepper
1 can(19 oz) chick-peas
2 tsp chili powder
1/2 tsp dried oregano and ground cumin
1/4 tsp hot pepper sauce
1/4 cup fresh lime or lemon juice
4 large flour tortillas
1 can(6 oz) tuna, drained and flaked
1 cup shredded Cheddar cheese
In large skillet, heat oil over medium heat, cook onion for 3
minutes, add garlic, celery and 3/4 cup of the green pepper, cook,
stirring often, for 5 minutes. Drain chick-peas, reserving 1/4 cup of
the liquid. Rinse chick-peas and add to skillet along with chili
powder, oregano, cumin and hot pepper sauce. Heat through, mashing
chick-peas with potato masher. Stir in lime juice and reserved
liquid, heat through.
Spread evenly over each tortilla, leaving 1-inch border. Sprinkle
with tuna pieces and roll up. Place, seam side down, in greased 13×9-
inch baking dish, cover tightly with foil and bake in 400 degrees F
oven for 15 minutes. Sprinkle with cheese, bake, uncovered, for about
3 minutes or until cheese melts. Garnish with remaining green pepper.
