Tuna Taco Things

What do you do with this combination of ingredients? See below for my solution!
 As a senior in high school, my class schedule was such that I could go home for the day after lunch. Thus, I typically did not bring a lunch to school, but instead ate upon arriving home.

This gave me an opportunity to experiment with my cooking. One of my experimental recipes from back then has made its debut here at the Bradshaw residence. Try it for yourself, and please let me know what you think!

Tuna Taco Things

corn tortillas (3-4)
1 can tuna in water
about 2-3 Tbsp. mayonnaise
1/4 cup frozen mixed vegetables (corn/peas/carrots/green beans)
cheese of your choice, sliced into strips: cheddar or Monterey Jack work well
spices, to taste: I add salt, pepper, garlic (the usual)

  1. Drain tuna. Put in bowl along with mayonnaise and selected spices. Mix together with a fork.
  2. Boil/otherwise heat frozen vegetables. Drain and add to tuna mixture. You may choose to add a bit more mayonnaise for the right balance/texture.
  3. Heat tortillas in a frying pan with a little oil. Flip at least once, then place a strip of cheese into the center and fold tortilla with a spatula. Let cheese begin to melt, then set aside and continue with the remaining tortillas.
  4. Spoon tuna mixture into tortilla shells.
  5. Enjoy!
