Tuna Tostadas With Cilantro Lime Crema

tuna tostadas with cilantro crema In Guatemala tostadas are a staple, and although the traditional recipes for tostadas usually don’t include tuna I thought adding a healthy tuna salad to a crunchy tostada would be a fun way to create an after school snack for the kids. To make the tostadas I used Bumble Bee® Albacore tuna and combined it with fresh ingredients. Bumble Bee® Albacore products are an easy and delicious way to add a variety of nutrients to your diet including lean protein, healthy fat, and important vitamins and minerals.

tuna tostadas with cilantro crema For this recipe I used greek yogurt instead of crema which also makes this recipe healthier and the yogurt combined with the cilantro and lime provides lots of flavor and a fresh taste to this easy dish.

This is an easy recipe that even the kids can make and I love that it reminds me of traditional recipes that I used to eat at home when I was a kid but this version is not only much easier than an enchilada (a Guatemalan dish that is served on a tostada, very different from the Mexican enchiladas) but also leaner and much healthier. My mother used to make delicious enchiladas and also really great tostadas with guacamole, refried black beans or tomato salsa and they where the perfect afternoon snack and now I am creating our own version of tostadas for my kids and relieving with them those fun after school moments enjoying a merienda or afternoon meal or snack.
