1 cup mayonnaise
Few drops hot pepper sauce (Tabasco-type)

Put onion, celery, and green pepper in the food processor with the steel blade; empty into dish.

Dissolve gelatin in warm water (mix it in). Heat soup in pan to warm and add gelatin.

Process cream cheese in a food processor with the plastic blade.

Poster's Notes:
This is a recipe I've been making for years! It's very TNT--in fact, I haven't made it for a while and I'm glad you reminded me about it! From the time we started making this it has always been called "salmon mousse" except that it's made with tuna. The tomato soup turns the mousse a pink color so it looks like salmon.
