Green Chile Tuna Melt

My favorite thing to make for lunch is a sandwich, but sometimes my normal turkey and cheese gets boring. I recently spiced things up with this Green Chile Tuna Melt. This warm sandwich is perfect for lunch with being filled with protein that will keep you fuller longer. 

To make this sandwich, you first start out by combining the tuna, Hatch Diced Green Chiles, red peppers, and green onions in a mixing bowl. Once that is all mixed together, you add the mayonnaise, mustard, and lemon juice and mix well. Then you assemble the sandwich and place the sandwich on a hot griddle or skillet until it is golden brown on both sides.

This recipe makes 4 sandwiches and is great for a quick and easy lunch.
