Tuna Mexi Melts


For the Picante:
1/2 Jalapeno; Seeded, Cored and Chopped
1 clove of Garlic 1 Lime, Juiced
For the Bread:
5 tablespoons of Butter, Melted
Cumin for Sprinkling
Chile Powder for Sprinkling
Garlic Powder for Sprinkling
For the Melts:
3 cans of Tuna
3/4 cup of your Picante
1/4 teaspoon of Salt
1/4 teaspoon of Cumin
1/4 teaspoon of Chile Powder
1/4 teaspoon of Paprika
8 ounces of Pepper Jack Cheese, Sliced


We’ll whip up the picante first. To do this, go ahead and add all the ingredients into your food processor. Zip it up good and then add in some salt to taste.
Next up, grab your french loaf and slice it into 1″ slices. Brush the melted butter over your slices of bread and then sprinkle on some cumin, chile powder, and garlic powder.
Add all the melt ingredients with the exception of the pepper jack cheese to a bowl and mix it up good. Now grab your bread and lop a large spoonful of the tuna mixture on each piece. Top them all off with a slice of pepper jack cheese. Throw your sandwiches into an oven heated to 350 degrees and let them heat up for about 10 to 15 minutes or until your cheese is melted and bubbling.
