Hungry Girl Spicy Taco Tuna Salad

I love tuna fish, I don't care if it comes in a can and smells a little weird, I love it. My husband leaves the room when I eat it, but it is one of my favorite things to have when I need something quick and filling. This recipe takes tuna to a whole new spicy level!

This comes from my Hungry Girl cook book and I have made it once already since this initial preparation.

You need some mayo, chili powder, cayenne, taco seasoning, peppers, tuna, salsa, hot sauce and some onion. You probably have most of this at your house already.

Chop up your veggies, I used my awesome (and cheap) Victorinox chef's knife.

Combine the mayo, hot sauce, salsa, and seasonings.

looks good already
Add in the chopped veggies.

Stir in the tuna and pop it in the fridge for about a half an hour so the flavors have time to really combine.

Spicy Taco Tuna Salad
You can serve this over lettuce, on a taco shell, or with some tortilla chips like I did. I absolutely loved this. You can make it even more low fat by using yogurt instead of mayo if you want. I will be making this again and again I am sure.


  1. I love tuna as well and I'm glad I stumbled upon this recipe and your blog!

  2. Okay, I have a confession to make - while I love fresh tuna steaks, um, the canned stuff? Not so much.

    But my husband loves tuna noodle casserole - now that his appetite is coming back, I may have to be the good wife, put a clothes pin on my nose and make it for him!

    Enjoy your weekend!

  3. Tried this and it is VERY good!

  4. I love how you show the red pepper, green pepper, and onion, then in the picture where they are diced they are still in the same order. Very visually appealing!
