Food You Can Eat: Tuna Tostadas

This recipe is from AllRecipes, an occasional source of random healthy-eating fodder. It was pretty good; I wasn’t expecting much from the recipe because of how basic it was, but to my surprise it was tasty and healthy.


    3 (5 ounce) cans solid white tuna packed in water, drained

    ½ (10 ounce) can sweet corn, drained

    ½ onion, finely chopped

    1 bunch cilantro, finely chopped

    2 tablespoons salsa

    1 lime, juiced

    hot sauce to taste

    salt and pepper to taste

    sour cream, for topping

    shredded cheese of choice

    8 tostada shells or 4 tostada bowls

    optional: garnish with avocado slices


Flake tuna into a bowl. Stir in corn, onion, cilantro, salsa, and lime juice. Season with a few dashes of hot sauce, and salt and pepper to taste. Stir to combine, then spoon onto tostada shells. Top each tostada with a dollop of sour cream, a sprinkling of shredded cheese, and a bit more hot sauce.

Serve cold as shown or pop under the broiler to melt/brown cheese.

  1. And, if instead of using the tostada you put the ingredients on a pizza crust this might be something you’d be served in any number of Northern European “pizzerias.”
