Southwest Tuna Shells

Need a quick, crowd-pleasing appetizer that needs no cooking? Look no further! 

2 boxes frozen Mini Fillo Shells, thawed about ten minutes (30 shells)
1/3 cup mayonnaise
1 Tbs. taco seasoning
1 tsp. tomato paste
1 tsp. fresh lime juice
1 can solid white tuna in water, drained and chopped
1/2 cup Southwestern Style corn, drained well
1 small bunch scallions, chopped
Fresh chopped cilantro or parsley for garnish

1. Combine mayonnaise, taco seasoning, tomato paste, and lime juice in a medium bowl.

2. Add tuna and scallions. Fold in corn.

3. Fill shells, dividing mixture evenly. Garnish with herbs. Chill until ready to serve. Makes about 30 shells.


  1. These look and sound yummy. I'll have to try them for our next gathering.

  2. They disappeared fast at our last neighborhood get-together, and the kids loved them!
