I used one can of tuna, but my husband said he may like another one added next time. I honestly was surprised at how much I enjoyed this recipe. I grew up eating tuna casserole, and was never a fan. The leftovers heated up great, too. Still creamy. I would have doubled the jalapenos in it, but my husband doesn't like things too spicy.
Mmm, sounds good.

Comfort on a plate! I think I would go for two cans of tuna, too, Donna John . YUM!
