So, here’s the deal. I love Taco Tuesdays – like a lot. But I don’t love the number it does on my waist line. In the theme of New Year, New You and my quest for a better, more improved GGG, I decided to turn my love of Taco Tuesdays into Tuna Taco Tuesdays with these better-for-you Chipotle Chunk Light Tuna Wonton Tacos with my favorite Bumble Bee® tuna.
I always have a select supply of canned goods and products in my pantry, ready for those moments when I need a go-to meal. Available in can or pouch, each Bumble Bee® product is an easy and delicious way to add a variety of nutrients to your diet, including lean protein, healthy fat, and important vitamins and minerals. Tuna can be used in sandwiches, salads, in main dishes or as a unique appetizer or light snack like my Chipotle Chunk Light Tuna Wonton Tacos.
To begin, I gathered my main ingredients and some wonton wrappers, cole slaw mix, cilantro, avocado and sesame seeds.
I began by turning my wonton wrappers into “tacos” by crisping them in a 350 degree oven. My “trick” is to spray a raised baking pan with cooking spray and laying the wonton wrappers over the side on the pan to create a triangle banner-style look over the pan.
While the wonton wrappers were baking, I mixed the tuna, chipotle peppers and mayonnaise together for the tuna taco filling.
Once the mixture was prepared and the wrappers were baked crisp, I filled each “taco” with a small layer of cole slow mix, topped the mix with tuna, garnished with cilantro and added a small chunk of avocado. To finish, I sprinkled sesame seeds over the tacos. The result is a deliciously satisfying way to participate in Taco Tuesday but with a healthier twist.
These Chipotle Chunk Light Tuna Tacos are a nice addition to a dinner party to celebrate the new year or maybe even a lighter option for those indulging in some extra eating on the day of the “big game.”
