When I saw the recipe here I thought, "What's not to like?". All the ingredients are favs around here...and they were with me too! But when heated, it just was not what I expected. I suggest for anyone trying this to heat up the tuna ingredients and place in a room temp avocado, then sprinkle with cheese. Guess hot avocado is not for me.
