Simple, cheap, quick, and tasty! You can make it easily while traveling or camping. Good for backpacking or just a quick snack. This got me through many nights traveling in Guatemala and Mexico on a very limited budget. I still like to make it even with a full kitchen because it reminds me of camping at the Mayan ruins. The tuna with oil is preferable, and if the avocado is good quality and ripe, you might not even need any salt.

I filled it with Barbies Tuna Salad found on this site. I think next time I will just use the tuna with oil. I like simple!

This is my new midnight snack! Sometimes I add a tad bit of mayo to the tuna though :D Also, sometimes I eat this with tortilla chips. But sometimes I just eat it as is. I really want to experiment more with this recipe by adding spices to olive oil and then mixing that in with tuna packed in water. Not a huge fan of the IDEA of packed in vegetable oil although the taste was great. Anyway, thanks for this new idea! edit: My new favorite way to eat this is by mixing in a *few* chipotle peppers in adobo sauce with the tuna.

Great recipe! Wonderful flavor. I had it topped with cherry tomatoes. Next time I will add a crisp slice of bacon crumbled also.
