I live in southern California, an area famous for its south-of-the-border cuisine. Mexican food is my favorite—I could eat it 7 days a week. Lucky for me, Mexican cuisine is found everywhere in California. If you're not familiar with Mexican food, be daring and give this recipe a try. You and your pets can try it together! This is a great recipe for both dogs and cats. It can be refrigerated for 2 days; do not freeze it.
6 corn tortillas
2 cans dark tuna in oil
1/2 cup chopped tomatoes
1/2 cup corn
2 tablespoons chopped red bell pepper
2 tablespoons tomato paste
1/2 cup grated Cheddar cheese
fresh parsley for garnish (optional)
1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Spray a cookie sheet with nonstick cooking spray.
2. Place the tortillas
on the cookie sheet and bake or broil until brown and crispy, about 3 to 4
minutes for baking
or 1 minute for broiling. Watch them closely so they don't burn. Turn them over about halfway through baking
so they brown on both sides.
3. Add the tuna,
tomatoes, corn, and bell pepper to a saute pan and saute over medium heat for 5
the tomato paste and cook for an additional 5 minutes to help thicken the mixture.
4. Break up one
tortilla over each serving to add crunch; then sprinkle with a little bit of the
cheese. Garnish with
parsley if you like, and it's ready to serve!
