Tuna Fish Torrejitas

When I'm on the prowl for a quick bite, craving something that tastes good and is easy to put together, I turn to these tuna tuna torrejitas. They're tasty, and when paired with a salad in the summer or steamed veggies in the winter, are both nourishing and energizing. To prepare a delicious, sabroso sandwich , try pairing this torrejita filling with pita bread and some greens. In this particular recipe I've substituted ground cracker or bread with Fiber One™ Original Cereal. I grind it up in the food processor so that my breading has the perfect texture, and these tasty torrejitas are ready in one half hour. You can prepare the torrejitas mix ahead of time and leave it in the fridge for a few hours so that, when you’re ready to serve or eat them, all you have to do is form the patties, bread, and then fry them up. You may also use fresh, baked or steamed fish. Simply shred the filet with a fork and add it to the mix. MORE + LESS -

    Put the 1/3 cup of Fiber One™ Original Cereal on a plate. Press each torreja in the ground cereal mix to completely bread each one.
