Meatless Fridays: Century Tuna Soft Tacos

Mabuhay!

If there's one dish that is equivalent to rice in our family, it would have be wheat tortillas. Just like rice, it's low maintenance (all you need to do is heat it up) and is a great canvas for adding whatever ingredients you want. We love making soft tacos and buritos with it at home!

Soft tacos are easy to make and if you add the right ingredients, it could be a healthy dish.

I'm sure some of you have your own version of a taco recipe, here's ours:

Century Tuna Soft Tacos


Ingredients:

3 cans of Century Tuna Lite, drained
Clockwise: 1 large tomato, fresh wansoy, chili (optional), 1 medium red onion, 1 small carrot, cheddar cheese
2 tbsp chili powder
wheat tortilla

Easy peasy:

Step 1: Heat up the tuna and add 2 tbsp. of chili powder. No need to add oil.
When cooked, set aside
Step 2: Chop the tomato, onion,  chilis (optional) and wansoy. Add 2 tbsp. of EVOO (extra virgin olive oil). Season it with salt and pepper.
Step 3: Grate the cheese and carrots
Step 4: Using a grill or pan, heat up the tortillas.
Spoon the filling on top of the wheat tortilla
Step 5: Fold the tortilla


This is also another recipe that you could add to your back-to-school menu. I always pack this for Aryanna to school and Tom for the office or his out of town surfing trips.



Shoppingero/shoppingera, have you prepared a back-to-school menu yet?

Hi Joyce!

Wansoy and kinchay have a big difference in smell and taste. Wansoy or cilantro has a minty (but different from mint leaves) smell to it. Best to ask the grocery clerk for it.
