Southwest Tuna Salad

When you are watching your calories, every meal really counts and  you want everything you eat to taste delicious and satisfying.  In this tuna salad, I've replaced the fat with flavorful ingredients, so you never miss the mayo and every bite is a flavor explosion!
Serve it over greens, or I like it wrapped in a whole grain tortilla.

1 5 ounce can solid white tuna, water packed, drained
1/2 cup low sodium black beans, rinsed and drained
1/2 cup frozen corn, thawed
1 green onion, chopped
1 tablespoon chopped fresh cilantro
1 tablespoon lime juice
few dashes Chipotle Tabasco sauce

Combine all ingredients, serve over greens or in whole grain wraps or tortillas.

Makes 2 servings.

Explore your supermarket for interesting new (to you) healthy products.
I found these Smart & Delicious Tortillas by La Tortilla Factory.  They're low carb, high fiber.
Each tortilla has only 50 calories (15 from fat) and has a whopping 7 grams of fiber....oh, and they're delish!
