  • ¼ cup green onions chopped
  • 1 Chipotle pepper in adobo “La Morena” minced
  • 1 Tbsp. Adobo sauce from the Chipotles.

  • After you open the can of tuna, drain the contents using a strainer. Transfer tuna to a medium size bowl and break pieces apart with a fork.
  • Add mayonnaise, minced chipotle pepper, and adobo sauce and start mixing. Stir in the chopped onions and combine with the tuna mixture. Season with salt and pepper.
  • Spread tuna mixture on 2 slices of bread. Top with the other slices.

The same ingredients used in this recipe can be used to make a quick dip: just add ½ cup of cream cheese while mixing the ingredients and serve with crackers. #VivaLaMorena #CollectiveBias
