Expert Tips

You can replace the Mexican crema with Greek yogurt for a more nutritional option.

Directions

  • 1 For Chipotle Sauce: Place Mexican crema, chipotle chiles, adobo sauce, garlic clove and salt in blender and mix until smooth. Set aside.
  • 2 For Tuna Patties: In a large mixing bowl, place tuna, eggs, onion, cilantro, garlic salt, and lime juice, and stir until all ingredients are well mixed.
  • 3 Heat olive oil in skillet over medium heat. Form small patties with tuna mixture, approximately 1 1/2 to 2 inches wide and about 1/2 inch thick. Cook for approximately 3 minutes or until golden brown and flip to cook other side. Remove from heat and place on paper towel lined plate to drain excess oil.
  • 4 Serve immediately and top with chipotle cream sauce.

I have great memories of my mother’s cooking during Lent. I would get home from school and the whole house would smell like fish, lentils, sautéed shrimp and veggies. For 40 days my mother would treat us to a variety of meatless entrees, my favorites being shrimp broth, pipian with nopalitos and tuna patties. Tuna patties are made with simple ingredients and taste delicious. In this recipe, I pair them with a spicy chipotle sauce that adds an extra kick of flavor. Give them a try this Lent season, I guarantee they will be in your dinner menu year-round!
