Pico de Tuna Recipe


  • 2 Cans Tuna (in water or oil)
  • 1 Garlic Clove
  • 1 Small White Onion
  • 2-3 Roma Tomatoes
  • 1-2 Serrano Chile Peppers
  • Freshly Ground Pepper, to taste
  • Salt, to taste
  • 8-10 Corn Tortillas, optional


Make sure you have the necessary ingredients.

To prepare your own tostadas to serve with the pico de tuna, toast the corn tortillas over a low flame on the stovetop until they’re crispy. Set aside.

Drain the tuna and place in a medium-sized bowl. If using tuna packed in water, you might want to add just a little oil, if desired.

Mince the garlic, and finely chop the onion. Then seed and dice the tomatoes. Mince the serrano peppers, adding the amount desired depending on how spicy you want it.

Add the garlic, onion, tomato, and peppers to the tuna and stir to combine. Add salt and pepper to taste.

You can serve it immediately or allow the flavors to meld a bit by refrigerating it an hour or so. Serve the pico de tuna with the tostadas or corn tortilla chips.

Enjoy this simple, healthy, and tasty appetizer.
