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!

How to Make Tuna-dillas


  • 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.
    Sprinkle with roasted sunflower seeds.
    Add taco or hot sauce to your taste.
  • 2Microwave for about 25 seconds until cheese is melted and tortilla is soft.
  • 3Add lettuce and tomatoes if desired and roll up.
