Tuna Salad with Southwest Chipotle Dressing

Southwest Chipotle Tuna Salad

A savory tuna salad with a Southwestern Chipotle (LOL something about parents not being able to pronounce Chipotle correct always gives me a good laugh) twist. My aunt inspired me to make this recipe that she randomly tossed together one day. The mixed this with an Italian dressing rather than the Southwestern Chipotle dressing I used. As many of you may know, I don’t eat meat or fish; however, Jeff gave this a taste test and said he would eat it over and over again!

Sick of those plain old bowls of tuna? Try this and spice up your lunches.
