Now this recipe is not new but an adaptation of this one – ThermoFun Tuna Cakes. It came about when I had some left over mash but I just wanted something different than the normal Tuna Cakes. So I went to my trusty spice rack and decided that a mexican twist is just what these patties needed! Voila we have thermomix mexican tuna patties/cakes. 🙂
Taking one standard dish and creating a new take on it! I love this style of cooking! It means that the cookbook shelves aren’t overloaded with 30 different ways to make something and your pantry doesn’t need to be a whole extra room! Which means – money in your pocket to buy more spatulas – you know you can never have too many spatulas – just ask my Funkies! 🙂
