SPICY Mexican Cold Salad Recipe



Disclaimer: I do not routinely stock "Spicy Habanero Tuna;" it was given to me. You could substitute regular tuna plus taco seasoning, canned chiles, or other spicy seasonings of your choice. Frankly you could just omit the tuna, but I was looking for a way to use this up. You could also probably substitute rice for the orzo, but again, the orzo was given to me and I'm trying to use it up.


Soak and cook

1/2 cup dry beans of the Mexican or chili sort of variety

in the usual manner. Drain.


Bring water to boil, add:

1 cup orzo (which is rice-shaped pasta)

1/4 cup dried minced onion

1/4 cup dried green bell pepper

1/4 cup home-dried cherry tomatoes

Return to boil and cook 9-10 minutes. Drain. Mix with beans.


In a small bowl, mix:

1/4 cup water

1 Tbsp tomato powder

1/2 tsp cumin

1/2 tsp cilantro

Stir into bean and orzo mixture. Then add

1 can spicy habanero tuna


Chill thoroughly before serving.


I found this to be QUITE spicy, so I'm topping each serving with a dollop of sour cream.
