Spicy Tuna {recipe}

One of the items that you will always find in our pantry besides spices and Extra Virgin Olive Oil is canned tuna. It's convenient, easy to store and not to mention perfect for emergencies.

A couple of years ago I was taught this recipe with basics, but I've kind of made it my own with different spices and ingredients :D


1 - 2 Cans of tuna in water, drained
1 Tbsp of chopped or minced garlic
1 Tsp of crushed black pepper
2 Tbsp of Extra Virgin Olive Oil
1/2 Cup of chopped fresh green bell pepper
1/2 Cup of chopped onion
1 Can of El Pato sauce
Salt to taste


1.- In a large skillet on medium heat sauté onions, bell pepper and tuna in Extra Virgin Olive Oil along with garlic. Mixing all ingredients well.

2.- Sprinkle black pepper and mix all ingredients.

3.- Add El Pato sauce and set to low heat with a lid on. If you want to add salt, this is when you should add it.

Enjoy with some hot corn tortillas and a side of refried beans!
