this dish tastes great. the combination of the zesty taste of the tuna with the creamy refried beans gives the dish a very distinct texture. i highly recommend it.
Since I like tuna and refried beans separately, I decided to give this a try, even though I couldn't picture these two ingredients together. As I suspected, this combination was too strange for me. I'm still giving it 3 stars for 2 reasons. One is that the recipe, made exactly as written, was edible, although not enjoyable. Two is that I thought this was great with cheese substituted for the tuna, which is how I ate the rest of it after the first serving. That creates a different recipe, but I love the cheese version.
This recipe has some good points to it, but overall does not work well together. I like the creaminess of the beans, and I also like the tuna lime mixture, but they absolutely do not taste good combined.
Great combination. Good way to add tuna to your mexican meal.
I made these for my family tonight (picky teenagers included). I used canned albacore tuna and refried black beans. We made one and split it between us as a trial since we were leery about the combination. Everyone loved it! I doubled the recipe for our family of 5 and we ate just about all of it.
