Saucy Chipotle Tuna Tostadas #WeekdaySupper

We all have those days where we just don't have a lot of time to throw a meal together, and sometimes take-out just isn't an option.  On busy days like those, I have a handful of recipes that I turn to so I can get a delicious meal the whole family loves on the table in less than 20 minutes.

These Saucy Chipotle Tuna Tostadas are super quick and easy to put together.  And they taste like you spent a lot more time in the kitchen than you actually did.

Ingredients:

  • 3 roma tomatoes, coarsely chopped
  • 1/2 medium onion, finely chopped
  • 1 to 2 serrano chilies, seeded and coarsely chopped
  • 10 Spanish (pimento-stuffed) olives, coarsely chopped
  • 3 cans tuna packed in water, drained
  • 1 (8 oz.) can tomato sauce
  • 1 to 2 chipotle pepper in adobo 
  • Tostadas
  • Red onion, sliced
  • Cilantro leaves 


Directions:
In a blender or food processor, puree the tomato sauce with the chipotle peppers until smooth; set aside.

Heat 1 tablespoon of vegetable oil in a medium non-stick skillet over medium heat.  Add the chopped tomato, onion, and serrano chilies; saute for about 1 minute.  Add the drained tuna and the chipotle/tomato sauce.  Stir gently to combine.  Cook until heated through.

Serve tuna atop tostadas and top with sliced red onion and fresh cilantro leaves.  Enjoy!
