1 can (5 oz) Prime Fillet® Solid White Albacore Tuna, drained and flaked

4 tablespoons low-fat plain Greek yogurt, divided

2 teaspoons lime juice

1/4 teaspoon chili powder

In a medium bowl, combine 2 tablespoons yogurt, lime juice, chili powder, garlic powder, and black pepper. Gently stir in green onions, salsa, and tuna until combined. Spray a medium skillet with cooking spray and put 1 tortilla in pan, heating on medium high heat. Spread tuna mixture evenly over one tortilla and sprinkle cheese over the top.
