Step 1

Mix Tuna, Mayo, Hot Sauce, & Green Onions together to desired taste and consistency. Its best to add the hot sauce and green onions together with the tuna first so you will know just how much mayo you will need.

Add a drop of hot sauce to the top of the mini pita's, then add equal amounts of tuna mixture to the top of each mini pita.

Cut the one ounce of cheese into 6 slices, or grate it and add equal amounts on top of tuna mixture.

You can either put them in the oven or toaster oven until the cheese is melted, or throw them in the microwave to melt the cheese.

I prefer to use the oven or the toaster oven to melt the cheese because it gives them all an equal amount of heat and warms the whole tuna melt through. Depending on your microwave, it may melt one more then the other, or cook one pita too long which makes it hard. Its the luck of the draw when using the microwave.
