Tuna stuffed avocados are something I eat as a healthy lunch option at least once a week. I’m always experimenting with creating new flavors. You’ve probably seen my viral recipe for a Mexican-inspired tuna stuffed avocado, and now I’m bringing you an all new one that has quickly become my new favorite. There’s no need for mayo in this tuna recipe! We’re keeping it healthy and tasty.
Pro Tip: use a high quality tuna for this recipe like Bumble Bee Solid White Albacore. Trust me, it matters. You can see the difference in quality just by opening the can.
