Spicy Tuna Melt

"SPICY TUNA MELT!! After picking up my organic melting cheese from @vaddogardsmejeri I got so inspired to make a gooey, cheesy, spicy tuna melt - so I did! This is hands down one of my favorite sandwiches because it's so easy to put together and you can make so many different versions of it."
