This recipe was found in Taste of Home in 2002. Thanks to a dash of mustard, salsa and hot sauce, these warm tuna sandwiches are full of zip.

Delicious, easy, quick. Had an electrician pulling apart my stove tonight so this was the quick dinner solution. Just headed the mixture on hotdog buns in the microwave, very simple but it went over really well.
I was pleasantly surprised by the taste! I've never had tuna salad with salsa and hot sauce in it, but the mix really worked with this sandwich! Great lunch for me! Thanks for sharing.
