Canned Tuna Ceviche Tostadas

Canned Tuna Ceviche Tostadas, There are many recipes for ceviche, (also spelled cebiche), some of which use fish, shrimp, or a combination of seafood. There is even a jicama ceviche! But, this time I decided to prepare the canned tuna version after a visit to my local Kroger supermarket.

  • ½ Cup chopped tomato or cherry tomatoes
  • ¼ cup chopped red onion
  • ¼ cup chopped cilantro
  • 1 serrano pepper* finely chopped
  • 1 lime
  • 1 Can Kroger Chunk light tuna in water 12 oz
  • ½ avocado
  • 4 corn tostadas
  • Salt and pepper
  • A drizzle of olive oil optional


  • Gently mix tomato, onion, Serrano pepper, and cilantro in a medium-size bowl. I say gently because if you over mix it, it will become a salsa, and this is more like a salad where you enjoy every bite of the ingredients in your mouth.
  • Drain any excess liquid from the tuna. Carefully, with the help of two forks, stir the tuna into the rest of the ingredients in the bowl. Add the juice of half a lime, and season with salt and pepper.
  • In another bowl, mash the avocado to form a puree, and add a few drops of lime while mashing it. Season with salt and pepper.
  • To form the tostadas, spread a portion of the avocado puree over each tostada and top it with the tuna ceviche. To garnish, you can add a few slices of Serrano pepper. Enjoy!


* You can add more Serrano pepper if you like spicy food, or substitute for jalapeño or even Habanero pepper.
**You can also prepare this dish to take to work for lunch, and instead of using corn tostadas use saltine crackers to eat it.
