In a mixing bowl, mash the avocado with the salt, lime juice, and garlic powder.
Mix in the jalapeno, onion, and cilantro until well combined.
Add in the tuna and mix until tuna is evenly distributed.
Serve on a sandwich, in a wrap, in a lettuce wrap, on crackers or alone.
I love the heat a bit of diced jalapeno adds to avocado tuna salad, but if you like your dishes mild, either omit the jalapeno or be sure to remove seeds and ribs of jalapeno and cut down to only 1/2 teaspoon for this tuna salad recipe.
The lime juice in this tuna salad adds such freshness and flavor and helps to keep the avocado from browning. If you don't have lime juice, you can use lemon juice. Just be sure that whether using lemon or lime juice, it is fresh.
Tip for juicing a lime/lemon: Place in microwave for 30 seconds before squeezing.
If you want this tuna salad to be heavier on the tuna, use 2 pouches for the same amount of other ingredients in the recipe. Just add in an additional 1/2 teaspoon salt.
