Spicy Mexican Style Tuna Salad Tostadas

I love tostadas. Well, Mexican food in general. I like that crispy corn tortilla topped with anything I want. And they are a perfect magic carpet ride for a quick lunch. While camping this past weekend I wanted a super speedy lunch.

Heaping spicy tuna salad
I remembered one of my husband’s favorite lunches. Nacho cheese Doritos topped with a salad of tuna canned in oil, canned peas, and fresh diced tomatoes, onions and jalapeños. I kept tuna canned in water and a can of tomatoes with chiles in my camping canned goods supplies. I had a can of peas too, but I thought frozen woud taste better. But I forgot to buy some-boo. But this quick lunch turned out delicious all the same. I may add the frozen peas next time for bite.

I had some of the leftover tuna salad on a green salad today. It was delicious-so delicious I forgot to snap a photo. Not me!
I chopped up 5 leaves of romaine and topped it with a steamed and diced small red potato, a handful of cherry tomatoes and a serving of the tuna salad. It was my own spicy version of a tuna nicoise.
Let me know what you think!
