Serve with a salad of mixed greens and tomatoes.


  • 4 small, round whole wheat bread rolls, about 3  inches across
  • 2 tablespoons low-fat sour cream
  • 2 tablespoons reduced-fat mayonnaise
  • 1 teaspoon hot chili sauce
  • 2 teaspoons fresh lime juice
  • 1 can (6 ounces) tuna in spring water, drained
  • 1 can (8 ounces) corn, drained
  • 1 can (15 ounces) red kidney beans, drained and rinsed
  • 1/2 green pepper, seeded and diced
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro
  • Salt and pepper

    How to make it  25 minutes

  • 1

    Preheat the oven to 350°F. Slice the tops off the bread rolls and set aside. Scoop out most of the soft interior, leaving a “shell” about 1/2-inch thick.

  • 2

    Make the scooped-out bread into crumbs, either by crumbling with your fingers or using a food processor. Spread 1/2 cup of the bread crumbs on a baking tray and toast in the oven until dry and crisp, about 10 minutes. Remove from the oven and set aside. Leave the oven on.

  • 3

    In a medium bowl mix together the sour cream, mayonnaise, chili sauce, and lime juice. Add the tuna, corn, kidney beans, green pepper, cilantro, and dried bread crumbs. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Stir well, taking care not to break up the chunks of tuna too much.

  • 4

    Spoon the tuna mixture into the hollowed-out rolls and replace the lids. Set on the baking tray and cover loosely with foil. Bake for 5 minutes, then remove the foil and bake for an additional 5 minutes to crisp the bread crust. The filling should be warm but not bubbling. Serve immediately.

Some people like to travel by train because 
it combines the slowness of a car with the cramped public exposure of 
an airplane.
