      Does anyone have a recipe for Texas Tuna?  Back in Central Pennsyvania. I shopped at Giant grocery stores.  They made a version of that Tuna.  If anyone goes in there could you please write down the ingredients off of a package and post it here.  It would be in a plastic container in the fresh food section.  Ask a manager to show you some if you can’t find it.  Thanks.
