easy prep time 15 mins | cook time 10 mins | SERVINGS 5


    1 (6.5 ounce) jar oil-packed tuna, drained
    1 tablespoon minced green onion
    2 tablespoons finely diced celery
    2 teaspoons capers, drained
    1 teaspoon La Fe chile paste
    2 tablespoons mayonnaise, or more to taste
    1/3 cup La Fe mozzarella cheese
    Salt and La Fe ground black pepper to taste
    2 tablespoons softened butter, divided
    2 thick slices bread
    1/4 cup shredded sharp white Cheddar cheese, divided
    1 pinch cayenne pepper, or to taste



    Begin by placing the tuna in a mixing bowl and break
    it apart using a fork. Following this, add in the green
    onions, celery, capers, chile paste, and mayonnaise.
    Now, tear & toss small pieces from the mozzarella
    cheese into the tuna salad and stir to mix. After this,
    season the mixture with salt and black pepper, and
    then refrigerate the tuna salad mixture until needed.

    Following this, heat the oven’s broiler. Line a baking
    sheet with aluminum foil.

    Spread butter or olive oil generously on both sides of
    bread slices of your choosing.

    Now, broil your prepared bread until golden brown on
    top. This process should take roughly 2 to 3 minutes.
    Flip bread slices and broil the other side until toasted.
    Once again repeat for 2 to 3 more minutes. Now,
    remove the bread from the oven and turn them over
    on the baking sheet so the darkest sides are on
    the bottom.

    Finally, spread the tuna salad on the bread slices.
    Make sure to press the salad onto the bread and
    spread the mixture to the edges of the bread.
    Sprinkle shredded sharp Cheddar over each
    sandwich. Sprinkle the tops with cayenne pepper.

    Place sandwiches under the broiler and cook until
    the cheese is melted and bubbling. This should take
    approximately 5 to 6 minutes.
