This recipe takes full advantage of #ConvenienceCooking methods by using a prepackaged tuna and only three other ingredients.

I found a snack packet of tuna at the market this last weekend. I tossed it in my cart because I was quite intrigued. Bumble Bee makes these great seasoned tuna kits that you can carry in your purse, book bag or coat pocket and not worry about refrigeration. I’m sure that I’m late to the game and the rest of the world already knows about these great things. I purchased the Spicy Thai Chili flavor, because, well, why not. (This is not a sponsored post, Bumble Bee has no idea that I’m talking about their product. I just loved it!)Spicy Thai Chili Tuna Packet

Instead of just snacking on the tuna right out of the packet, I decided to use it in a spread for crackers. Of course, that means adding some cream cheese!

Due to the name of the tuna, I anticipated this spread to have some kick. After I tasted the completed spread, I was surprised that it’s actually quite mild. If you’re looking for some additional heat, use two of the Spicy Thai Chili tuna packets. Another way to add some heat would be to add a dash of hot sauce or a half teaspoon of red pepper flakes.
