I dont care for tuna at all, but these are really good! A great appetizer for cookouts, showers, etc. I always double this recipe.

These were pretty good--I subbed a few jarred jalapeno rings (patted dry & chopped) for the celery. I also used a mix of regular & chili-flake crackers to put into the balls, and rolled the final product in chopped almonds for color contrast. Nice, crunchy, and lightly spicy--a good snack for my in-laws' 40th anniversary party!
