There is just something about a tortilla, maybe it’s because it reminds me of home back in Guatemala or maybe it’s just the possibilities: when it comes to combining ingredients into a tortilla to make a soft taco the possibilities are endless. From flor de calabaza and shredded pork to tuna, if you combine the ingredients in the right way you can create a taco that is much more than a quick lunch or dinner solution: you get to make food that is fun to eat, fun to make and a delight to the palate.
These tuna tacos don’t need to be warmed up, they are quick and easy to make and they combine a little bit of spice and a lot of taste with fresh ingredients that make them an ideal summer meal. The Bumble Bee® Prime Fillet® Gourmet Flavors Albacore Tuna are a great solution for when you are looking for an easy meal solution but don’t want to compromise flavor or eating healthy. Bumble Bee® Prime Fillet® Gourmet Flavors Albacore Tuna combines the highest quality albacore tuna with the finest, restaurant-inspired ingredients. Convenient and nutritious.

I work out a lot and I am always in search of meals that are healthy and that pack a lot protein but few calories. The tuna provides lots of protein and a great taste and instead of topping it with chipotle crema I have created my own version using greek yogurt making it healthier and adding even more protein.
While I was preparing the tacos I had a couple of spoon fulls of the tuna straight out of the can and it has a great taste and a wonderful texture. We travel a lot and we have lots of road trips planned for this summer and the Bumble Bee® Prime Fillet® Gourmet Flavors are perfect for picnics and road trips weather eaten by itself, as part of a salad, in a sandwich or wrapped in a tortilla!
