Tuna Spread or Dip

This is great for an after school or evening snack or an appetizer at a party.
You can use it as a dip for your favourite tortilla  chips ... gluten-free or regular  (make sure you read labels if you need gluten free, some tortilla chips are now made with wheat)  OR you can use it as a spread for bun halves.

  • 1 tin flaked tuna (I used tuna with sundried tomatoes and basil) 
  • 3 hard boiled eggs 
  • 1 cup grated cheddar cheese 
  • 2 tbsp finely chopped green pepper 
  • 2 tbsp finely chopped onion 
  • 2 tbsp sweet green relish 
  • 1/2 cup mayonnaise 
  1. Mix all ingredients together. 
  2. For dip, heat in microwave until hot -- serve immediately with chips. 
  3. For spread --  place bun halves on baking sheet, spread with tuna mixture and broil until bubbly and cheese is melted.  -- serve immediately. 


  1. This looks delicious and reminds me of tuna burgers that my aunt used to make. I've been looking everywhere for the guacamoli chips and can't seem to find them!! I'll keep looking.

  2. This brings back memories of my childhood. My mom's sister would always make this for lunch on Friday's when us kids came for lunch when we were in school. Those where the days when kids still came home for lunch and my part time.

    1. ***Looks great, will have to try it soon.
