Tex Mex Tuna and Potato Melt

Tex Mex Tuna Melt
For me, this is perfect Friday night fare. Minimum fuss and full of flavour. Add a handful of crushed tortilla chips to the top for crunch, or serve it with sour cream and guacamole for a Tex-Mex feast.

2 x 111g tins Tuna in Olive Oil, drained
120g grated cheddar cheese
8 cherry tomatoes, halved (optional)
1 tbsp jalapenos, diced (optional)
1 lime, cut into wedges


1 Preheat your oven to 220 degrees. Dry the potato wedges with a tea towel and place them on a tray. Drizzle with oil and roast for 20-25 minutes till golden.

2 Mix the mayonnaise, relish, cumin, paprika, celery, two tablespoons of coriander and half of the red onion together in a bowl. Fold the tuna flakes through.

3 Once the potato wedges are cooked pile the tuna mix into the centre, covering most of the wedges. Top with grated cheese and cherry tomatoes then return to the oven for 10 minutes.

4 Once the cheese is melted and the tuna is hot, top with the reserved red onion and diced jalapenos. Scatter with the remaining coriander and serve with wedges of lime.
