Tuna Gringo Recipe

This is an easy hot dish that my kids love. I got the recipe from a friend who worked at a daycare. It sounds repulsive, but it's not too bad in a pinch.


1 can Bushes baked beans-any flavor
2 cans tuna
2 cups shell macaroni or elbow, something that the sauce can cling to
1 cup milk
2 cups shredded cheddar cheese
1 Tsp chili powder
1 Tsp garlic powder
1 TBS onion powder
salt and pepper to taste
1 bag of corn chips


Boil pasta for 10 minutes and drain
In a large sauce pan, add drained tuna, baked beans, milk, cheese, pasta, chili powder, garlic powder, onion powder, salt, pepper, and simmer for at least 15 minutes to incorporate the flavors. Stir in the shredded cheese and remove from heat. Let rest for 5 minutes before serving. Garnish with corn chips. Serves 4.


This gets better the next day, like sauces and chili does.
