Super Simple Tuna Enchiladas

Moms, they always seem to find a way to stretch the budget, without us realizing it, because everything they do is done with love.  Our case growing up was no different.  Although we weren’t always able to afford all the food we wanted, my Mom always found a way to get us to try new things.  And tuna was big part of that in our house. Not only did my Mom manage to quench our hunger with her yummy healthy tuna cakes, but she was also able to do it with her super simple tuna enchiladas.  Thankfully for me her recipes are so simple to duplicate, that it’s easy to keep recreating them in my home, which makes me appreciate her and her love for us that much more.
