A different take on quesadillas, using tuna. The crunch of the sunflower seeds added to this recipe makes for an interesting touch. I got it from a little Mexican takeout place in San Diego many years ago, with a little spin of my own. Don't let the sound of this throw you off. It really is a quick, easy, and tasty treat!

corn tortillas
shredded cheese (i use medium cheddar)
roasted sunflower seeds
taco or hot sauce
tomato, diced (optional)
lettuce, shredded (optional)


1Sprinkle cheese on a corn tortilla like you would for a quesadilla.
Top with tuna. I add a little mayo to the tuna to act as a binder, but you don't have to.
