I love to make this quick tuna sandwich spread for my weekday lunches. A few pantry ingredients and a few minutes are all you need.

  • 2 cans of yellowfin tuna (albacore/ skipjack tuna works too)
  • 1/2 cup red onion
  • 1 Jalapeno
  • 1 teaspoon black pepper (adjust to your taste)
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt (adjust to your taste)
  • 5 tablespoons softened butter*
  • 4 tablespoons mayonaise
  • 1 tablespoon lime juice
  • 1 teaspoon Dijon Mustard
  1. Drain and discard all the liquid from tuna cans. Put tuna into a bowl.

  2. Add finely chopped red onion, chopped green chilies, black pepper and salt to the bowl as well.

  3. With gloves on, break tuna very finely and mix very well with the rest of the ingredients.

  4. Add Mayonaise, butter, dijon mustard, and lime juice. Mix really well until they become a paste.

  5. Taste and adjust salt, black pepper, and lime to your taste.

  6. You can keep the spread in the fridge and apply it to your toast or bread whenever you need it.

  • To quickly soften butter, put the butter stick into a microwave-safe plate and microwave for about 15 seconds.¬†
