Tuna Salad Quesadillas

By: Sharon Chen from
Tuna Salad Quesadillas
Tuna Salad Quesadillas

"They taste so authentic but with more cheese! Prepare some salsa, guacamole, and sour cream to go with it. Those are best friends who are not meant to be separated."

NotesThe reason that we don’t use 1/4 cup mayonnaise all at once is because we want to prevent the quesadillas from being too liquidy. Reducing the mayonnaise in the tuna salad filling will help.

Yields4 quesadillas


  • 1 12 oz can solid white tuna, drained and flaked
  • 1/2 cup celery, chopped (1 stalk)
  • 1/4 cup green onion, thinly sliced
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
  • 1/4 cup mayonnaise, divided
  • 2 teaspoons snipped fresh dill or 1/2 teaspoon dried dill
  • sea salt and ground black pepper to taste
  • 1 cup mozzarella cheese
  • 4 medium sized tortillas
  1. In a large bowl, mix tuna, green onion, and celery.

  2. Add lemon juice, a small pinch of sea salt and black pepper, 3 tablespoons mayonnaise, and dill to the tuna mixture. Toss until even. Now we have a delicious tuna salad filling.

  3. Next, let’s make the quesadillas! Heat up a nonstick skillet over high heat. When the skillet is hot, place 1 tortilla in the center of the skillet.

  4. Quickly scoop 2 heaping tablespoons tuna salad filling onto half side of the tortilla. Spread out the tuna salad filling by the back of a big spoon. Place 1/4 cup mozzarella cheese on the other half side of the tortilla.

  5. When the cheese just starts melting, fold the tortilla in half. Cook each side for an additional 30 seconds or until the tortilla turns crisp and brown.

  6. Repeat step 3-5 to make the other 3 quesadillas.

This Tuna Salad Quesadilla is a complete meal by itself and my kids will not mind it they have this 3 to 4 times a week. My kids are just crazy about Mexican food and they can have quesadillas, tacos, burritos as their alternating at any day of the week. I love them, too. Just found out burritos are not native of Mexico. Have to make a research on it. I don't mind, though. They are heavenly.
