Crispy nachos are topped with fresh avocado, sweet peppers, tuna and lime juice! These healthy and easy Tuna Nachos are the perfect easy weeknight meal!
Nachos are a big deal in our house. Back when we were in college, we would have to get extremely creative the day or two before pay day. Oh, the good ole days.
We would scavenge the cabinets every other Thursday and scrape together dinner. It was almost always nachos because you could use half a bag of tortilla chips, a can of beans and some odd and end vegetables and voila! You have dinner!
Over the years our variety of nachos has improved considerably! We enjoy Shrimp Nachos, Jerk Chicken and Sweet Potato Nachos and these insanely easy Tuna Nachos! You can never go wrong with a big plate of nachos.
This easy and healthy dinner includes Bumble Bee® Solid White Albacore in Water, chunks of fresh avocado, diced sweet pepper, cilantro, green onions and lime juice! And there you have it! A fun, easy twist on an old classic!

How do you make Tuna Nachos?
These Tuna Nachos practically make themselves. The only prep is your veggies, and you’re basically done! First, I gathered together my favorite Nacho toppings- avocado, bell pepper, green onions and red onions and chopped them up.
Next, put all of these together in a bowl with a can of Bumble Bee® Solid White Albacore in Water. Add lime juice, salt and pepper and mix well. Spread a layer of tortilla chips onto a baking sheet in an even layer and top with your Tuna mix.
Add some sharp cheddar on top of it all and pop your baking sheet into the broiler for 30 seconds to one minute- watch carefully! You just want to keep the sheet under the broiler until the cheese is melted. Voila! Your Tuna Nachos are ready to be inhaled!
How to Store and Reheat Tuna Nachos
To store, I recommend placing these nachos in a single layer in a glass or plastic airtight container and place in the fridge. These Tuna Nachos will stay fresh for up to two days. The chips will lose a bit of their crunch, but the nachos will still be delicious!
To reheat, I would use the oven. Simply put your nachos back onto your baking sheet and preheat your oven to 350 degrees. Warm for ten minutes or until your desired temperature has been met.
