Tuna Quesadillas

Recipes in this PostTuna Quesadillas

When I was making all the dishes for Thanksgiving today, I got hungry, but there really wasn’t anything in what I was preparing that I could munch on. I looked in the cupboard and saw I had a nice can of tuna in oil. But, I didn’t want a sandwich, because tomorrow I am having The Sandwich, and I’m having stuffing tonight. That’s a lot of bread. However, I also spied a package of corn tortillas in my refrigerator. Mexican sounded like the perfect thing for a Thanksgiving snack.

Recipe: Tuna Quesadillas


  • 1 can tuna in oil
  • 2 tablespoons good mayonnaise
  • 4 dashes Habenero sauce
  • 1 teaspoon dried red onion
  • 8 slices of cheddar cheese, thinly sliced
  • 4 corn tortillas
  • 2 pats butter
  • 1/2 avocado, sliced
  • 2 teaspoons real sour cream
  • 4 dashes Tabasco


  1. Mix the tuna, mayonnaise, onion and habenero together.
  2. Put a pat of butter in a pan, and heat the pan.
  3. Put two slices of cheese on each tortilla, top with half of the tuna mixture, the other slices of cheese, and the remaining tortilla.
  4. Cook on one side on low heat until the cheese melts, about 3 minutes.
  5. Turn and cook on the other side.
  6. Serve with sliced avocado, sour cream and Tabasco.


If you don’t like spicy foods, omit the hot sauces.
