Used some sun dried tomatoes I had left over. Also put in several scallions instead of just 1. turned out pretty tasty.

Had this for lunch. Was delicious. I wasn't sure I would like it (not a canned tuna fan or much of a cottage cheese fan) but it all complemented each other really nicely. Used ground coriander too which was nice.

This was really tastey and makes a change to all of the usual baked potato fillings. However I'm not sure the amounts are correct as I used a lot less tuna and still had too much! It was also VERY spicy
