Drain your Tuna and put it into a bowl. Chop up and put your Green Pepper, Red Pepper, and Red Onion into a separate bowl. Take out a large stove top pan, turn your burner on medium-high heat, and add in your 1 Tablespoon of Olive Oil into your pan. Let your oil heat up for a couple minutes. Once your pan heats up add in your chopped Peppers and Onion. Stir those around a bit and then add in your Beans. Stir your Beans in. After around a minute reduce your heat to medium. Let it cook for around 5 minutes while stirring everything together around every 30 seconds. After 5 minutes reduce your heat to low-medium. Add in your Salsa, Tuna, and Fajita Seasoning Mix. Mix everything together and then let it cook for 3 minutes, stirring it every minute. Take out a piece of Pita Bread and cut it in half. Add in your Tuna Mix, Salsa, Sour Cream, and Cheese. Mouthgasm!
