I Don't Eat Average Food

My brother-in-law says I won't eat just anything.  My food has to be scrumptious.  He used that word.  Scrumptious.  It totally made me laugh.  He's right though!  Last week I made Creamy Butternut Squash Soup for dinner but didn't have any bread for dipping or making grilled cheese.  The only carb-ish thing I had was tortillas.  With squash soup?  Eh, maybe.  But remember, my food has to be scrumptious!  So I used the tortillas to make a Mexican Tuna Melt.  It was faaaabulouuus (annoying sing-song-y voice)!

Mexican Tuna Melt:
Serves 2

2 flour tortillas
1 can tuna
1-2 Tbsp mayonnaise
2 Tbsp chopped fresh dill
10 cherry tomatoes
freshly ground black pepper
2 slices swiss cheese
2 tsp feta cheese
2 tsp shredded parmesan cheese
sliced avocado (optional) 

Mix tuna with mayonnaise, dill, tomatoes, and pepper.  Put pan over medium-low heat.  Lay tortilla on pan.  On one half of the tortilla place 1 slice swiss, half the tuna mixture, 1 tsp feta, 1 tsp parmesan and avocado slices, if using.  Fold tortilla in half and cook until browned and crisp.  Repeat with remaining tortilla. 

You can use any cheese combo, but try this one sometime because it was money.  I added the avocado as optional because I made it again the next day with the avocado and it was, dare I say it, scrumptious.
