Spicy Tuna Melt Baked Potato

I just love the savory combination of tuna and melted cheese. The baked potato magnifies and marries the creamy savoriness of the two, and it is quite yummy.

1/4 cup tuna
2 Tbsp sour cream, plus a dollop on the side
1/4 cup shredded cheese, plus more for topping

1. Cut a thin slice off the top of the potato (lengthwise).
2. Scoop out flesh of potato into a bowl. Mix with tuna, sour cream, cheese, red onion, oregano, Tabasco (use a fork to mash them together til smooth).
