Tuna, Goat Cheese, and Spinach Tacos

Yield Makes 4 servings
With flavors more Mediterranean than Mexican, this luscious recipe gives a crowd-pleasing twist to a Latin favorite.

Ingredients

  • 1/3 cup sour cream
  • 2 ounces room-temperature goat cheese, crumbled
  • 1 1/2 pounds (1/2-inch-thick) tuna steaks
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 cup cherry tomatoes, halved
  • 4 cups baby spinach
  • 4 large flour tortillas

How to Make It

  1. Combine sour cream and goat cheese in a bowl, stirring until blended. Set aside.

  2. Sprinkle tuna steaks with salt and pepper. Heat oil in a grill pan or skillet over medium-high heat. Add tuna, and cook 2 minutes per side or until desired degree of doneness. Remove from skillet, and set aside.

  3. Add tomatoes to skillet, and remove from heat. Cook tomatoes with residual heat for 1 minute, stirring constantly. Add spinach; stir 1 minute or until slightly wilted. Remove from skillet.

  4. Warm tortillas according to package directions. Slice tuna across the grain into 1/4-inch strips. Place strips on half of each tortilla. Top with spinach and tomatoes, and drizzle with goat cheese mixture. Fold tortilla, and serve immediately.
