Spicy Keto Tuna Melt Cups - pouring into muffin molds

Have a can of tuna in the pantry?

Consider mixing up a batch of these EASY & DELICIOUS spicy keto tuna melt cups using a muffin pan for a perfect low carb dish! This is such a genius way to eat tuna! Even folks who aren’t necessarily huge fans of canned tuna fish will LOVE this idea.

Let’s get spicy!

I use shredded pepper jack cheese and sliced jalapenos for lots of added flavor in this recipe (it works out perfectly with the sharp cheddar and tuna). If you don’t want spicy, just nix the jalapenos and spicy cheese, and use all cheddar or a cheese of your choice.

This is a must try keto recipe!

How YUMMY! We absolutely LOVED these spicy tuna cups, and I already had the simple ingredients on hand. I also appreciate how easy this idea is to mix together and bake, and the leftovers warm up nicely. These would be a perfect make-ahead lunch or dinner idea, and can be stored in a covered container in the fridge for up to 3-4 days.

P.S. If you’re looking for great muffin and cupcake pan, this silicone one works great, is non-stick, and easy to wash!

    Thanks! One thing that could be helpful is if you’re able to add abbreviations like NF for Nut Free in the title. Doing keto is hard in our family due to nut allergy. But we’ve been doing it for 2 years!

    • Amber (Hip2Keto Sidekick)

      You’re so welcome! Thanks for the request! I will be sure to pass that along to the team!

    How would these freeze?

    • Lina D (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      I think they’d do well! Especially warned in the oven again 👍

  3. Nichole

    Thanks. These were good and I did freeze for lunches

    • Cassandra (Hip Sidekick)

      You’re so welcome, Nichole! Great idea to freeze them!

  4. Tae

    Think I can use fresh jalapeños instead of jarred? I’m out of pickled and have tons of fresh peppers

    • Cassandra (Hip Sidekick)

      Sure! You can use fresh jalapeños if you prefer, Tae.

  5. Laurie

    these were delicious! I was wondering if I could try making them with chorizo sometime. Without the tuna of course, but everything else the same. I think I would put half the egg and cheese mixture, then the fried chorizo and then the other half of the mixture.

    • Lina D (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      Well that sounds delicious! Yum!
