About this recipe: This is quick and easy Mexican style dish, which also tastes fab! Crisp tortilla shells (tostadas) are topped with a mixture of refried beans, tuna, salsa, lettuce and avocado.
These are quick and easy to make. I didn't have a scotch bonnet so I subbed a jalapeno. I used solid white Albacore packed in water. The creaminess of the refried beans pair well with the tuna and lime. If you use a good quality tuna don't be afraid to make this. - 01 Feb 2015
Since I like tuna and refried beans separately, I decided to give this a try, even though I couldn't picture these two ingredients together. As I suspected, this combination was too strange for me. I'm still giving it 3 stars for 2 reasons. One is that the recipe, made exactly as written, was edible, although not enjoyable. Two is that I thought this was great with cheese substituted for the tuna, which is how I ate the rest of it after the first serving. That creates a different recipe, but I love the cheese version. - 04 Feb 2006 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
this dish tastes great. the combination of the zesty taste of the tuna with the creamy refried beans gives the dish a very distinct texture. i highly recommend it. - 19 Oct 2004 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
