Avocado Tuna Melt

All this talk about Mike and we made a tuna melt today based on a receipt he gave us a long time ago. it’s very simple you make it the same way you do regular tuna except substitute avocado instead of mayo. Spread on bread of choice top with cheese and place under broiler until cheese is melted and i like it slightly burned.

It was another one of those days where I got home  hungry,  but had no idea what I wanted, Lyn was on a special cleansing diet so I was on my own, I’m plenty clean.

I had taken a hamburger out of the freezer in the morning, but that was not going to cut it.

Scanning the refrigerator I saw the last jar of What to do with 5 lbs. of Green Unripen Tomato – Salsa!, chunk of Iris cheddar, some nice early spring asparagus, an avocado and I remember a rare thing a bag of chips in the pantry.

So grabbed the burger and browned while chopping it up over medium heat, when that was browned I added some of the salsa. My thoughts were to moisten it up enough to soften the chips. Grated the cheddar, chopped the asparagus into bite size pieces

Put a layer of chips in a small baking dish covered that with  the meat mixture, then with most of the cheese then sliced an avocado and made a layer of that topped with more cheese. Baked at 350 until the cheese melted maybe 10 minutes.

I looked over and Lyn was staring at it with wanting eyes but she is the most dedicated woman I know she stuck with the cleansing and I ate too much.

I guess you could call it Nachos now that I think about it.

Nothing fancy but kicked A over a burger in a bun.
