Remember a few weeks ago when I told you my secret on how to make the best deli-style tuna salad?   After that StarKist reached out to me and introduced me to their Tuna Creations pouches.  These single serve pouches are great for on the go and do you want to know the best part?  They don’t require any draining!  They come in several variety of flavors including Herb and Garlic,  Zesty Lemon Pepper, Sweet and Spicy, and Hickory Smoked.   These are handy, portable and great for a variety of recipes like these delicious Tuna Enchiladas Verde, to add to salads or even even right out of the pouch with a fork. 

Many of us enjoy Seafood Fridays during the Lenten season.  These Tuna Enchiladas Verde are easy to whip up, great for Seafood Fridays or for a quick weeknight dinner.  For this recipe I used  StarKist Tuna Creations and Zesty Lemon Pepper.  You just need to open the pouch and toss it in a bowl with the other ingredients.  Give it a stir, wrap them in the tortillas and bake them for about 20 minutes.  These are full of delicious flavors the whole family will love.
