Spray a 13 x 9-inch glass baking dish with non-stick spray. Split the English muffins in half and place side by side in dish. Spread the tuna mixture evenly over the muffins and sprinkle with the cheese. Broil until the cheese melts, two to three minutes. If you like your English muffins crunchy, toast them before placing in baking dish. Serve at once.
