Avocado Tuna Melt

The other day I had a ripe avocado and I didn’t know what to do with it.  So naturally,  I made a tuna melt.  That may seem a little random, but I assure you, it made complete sense to me at the time.  Especially since it was lunch time and I also had a can of tuna in the pantry.  I’ve been a big fan of mixing my tuna fish with avocado recently.  It makes it nice and creamy and you don’t have to use mayonnaise.  So I mashed my tuna with my avocado, added a little seasoning, toasted it on an english muffin with some cheese and voila…tuna melt!

Start by placing your tuna fish and avocado in a bowl.  Using a fork, mash it together.  Add garlic salt, pepper and cayenne pepper (for a little heat).
