Thai Style Tuna Wraps are an easy, different and delicious way to enjoy tuna. The cilantro, cabbage, peppers, carrots and more are definitely worth a try! They not only look good but they taste good too!
Sometimes thinking of a new lunch item can be taxing. The same old thing day after day gets really old, really fast. I love a tuna salad sandwich as much as any person, but you can only eat so many of them. This Thai Style Tuna Wrap recipe takes canned tuna to a whole new level!
By combining the tuna, cilantro, green onions, and mayo you already have a new twist on a normal, regular, plain, old, tuna sandwich.
The toppings really set this wrap apart from other lunches. The cabbage, peppers, and carrots really add a great crunch to these wraps. I think cheese makes everything better!
You can put on as many toppings or as little as you want. You can customize each Thai Style Tuna Wrap to be just the way you like it.
My family and I love to dip these wraps in Chipotle aioli. It just adds that extra something that really sets this Thai Style Tuna Wrap apart!
Chipotle aioli can be found in the mayonnaise section of most grocery stores. It is worth the effort to find this or follow my easy recipe below. It can be used on so many things! The store bought version will last longer than my easy homemade version.
I also have to clarify that this is not Chipotle Aioli in the truest sense of the word. This is our version and we love it. To make aioli properly in my opinion you need to make homemade mayo and it just takes too long.
If you would like my recipe for real Chipotle Aioli just send me a message in the comments and I will gladly share it with you! It is delicious. I just figure why spend the extra time making it when this version tastes absolutely wonderful and is so easy to prepare!
I really think these Thai Style Tuna Wraps are what your lunches have been missing!
How to make Chipotle Aioli for Thai Style Tuna Wrap
Ingredients in Chipotle Aioli or Chipotle Dip
- ½ cup mayonnaise
- ¼ cup sour cream
- 1-2 green onions, thinly sliced
- 2-3 teaspoons garlic, minced
- 1-2 small chipotle chiles en adobo, minced (about 2 teaspoons)
- ¼ teaspoon adobo sauce, from the chipotle peppers can
How to make Chipotle Aioli
In a container with a resealable lid, combine all ingredients and stir until blended together. After you stir your ingredients together, I usually use a fork to do it, be sure to taste your mixture to see if you want to add more heat.
The first time you make it I recommend using 1 green onion, 2 teaspoons of minced garlic, 1 minced chipotle chiles and ¼ teaspoon of the adobo sauce. Taste it and see if you prefer more flavor of any kind.
That is why I have included a range for the ingredients because everyone has different tastes and I am always careful about how "hot" something is.
This dip is definitely worth taking a chance on and can be easily doubled if necessary!
Refrigerate for at least 30 minutes, or longer if possible, for the flavors to blend together. Each batch will last about 3 days in your fridge.
