Hickory-Smoked Tuna Quesadillas

OK, so this recipe isn’t gourmet, it barely belongs in a seafood section, and it was found on the back of a package of Starkist Tuna — I don’t care. It rocks.

Starkist made the smart move to offer their products in convenient tear-off pouches. No can opener, no draining and no fuss. This is a great snack to serve at half-time.


1 pouch Starkist Hickory-Smoked Tuna
1-1/2 oz. softened cream cheese
1/2 cup Colby-Jack shredded cheese
1/8 cup roasted red bell pepper strips
2 scallions, thinly sliced
2 flour tortillas
drizzle of olive oil


In a medium bowl, mix tuna, cream cheese, shredded cheese, peppers and onions. Spread on one side of a tortilla shell to the edge. Top with the other shell.

Heat olive oil in a skillet and cook the quesadilla until slightly toasted on each side. Ensure that the cheese is evenly melted. Place on a serving tray and cut into eight wedges.

Serves 2-4.
