These Avocado Tuna Melt Bites are the perfect bite-sized appetizer for your next brunch or party!
I’m absolutely obsessed with these delicious little bites! These Avocado Tuna Melt Bites are filled with creamy avocado, flakey Albacore white tuna, crisp cucumbers and topped with a juicy tomato slice and melty cheese all on top of a crispy cracker!
I’ve teamed up with Chicken of the Sea to share their new fresh tuna pouches that are NO DRAIN, which make them so easy to use!
Do you see that little blue label in the top left hand corner of the pouch? That means that Chicken of the Sea is MSC (Marine Stewardship Council) certified, which means that Chicken of the Sea meets the rigorous standards for sustainable fishing practices. You can read more about that here, but what you should know is that Chicken of the Sea is one of the largest brands to commit to these strict standards, and plays a leading role in helping to protect our global seafood supply for the future.
I always have cans of tuna on hand in the pantry because it’s a quick snack that is packed full of protein, but these handy little pouches are even easier to use since there is no need to drain! I can just open and enjoy, which is perfect for these quick bites or my Tuna Noodle Casserole Skillet!
The tuna inside is flakey and super fresh tasting. You’re going to love it!
Raise your hand if you like tuna salad?! I love a good tuna salad that is packed full of goodies like diced avocado, crunchy cucumber and juicy tomato slices.
What’s even better is a tuna melt! Am I right?!
I’ve taken all the flavors of a tuna melt and squished them down into a bite-size form and it’s beyond delicious!
The avocado tuna salad mixture is fantastic on it’s own, but when placed on a cracker… it’s super addictive.
I use a tablespoon cookie scoop to quickly and easily place the tuna filling on top of each cracker. Then I top each pile of tuna with a slice of a cherry tomato.
So cute, right?!
All that’s left to do is top with some shredded cheese and bake for just a few minutes!
I’m telling you guys, these little bites are crazy good. I couldn’t stop popping them into my mouth!

How far in advance can you make these? I want to make them for a brunch I’m having next weekend. Thanks!
Hey Donna, I would serve these within 20 to 30 minutes of making. That being said, you can prepare the tuna mixture ahead of time and just pop them in the oven before serving!
My family loves tuna melts! I bet these little bites taste so good. Can’t wait to try them this weekend!
