Poke Nachos With Spicy Tuna

Posted on

Nachos are a favorite meal for me, especially for dinner. They’re like crispy chips topped with ahi tuna, spicy mayo, and all sorts of yummy toppings! I enjoy adding green onions, avocado, mango, sesame seeds, cilantro, and unagi sauce. You know what’s even better? Transforming poke into poke nachos! It’s the best appetizer ever, and I always order it when I’m out, so we just had to recreate it at home, and it turned out even better. Instead of regular chips, we use wonton wrappers to make them extra crunchy to balance the spicy tuna’s melt-in-your-mouth goodness!
