Picadillo Taco Filling
- 1 12-oz. pkg. soy "ground meat"
- 1 medium-sized apple, cored and diced
- 1/2 medium-sized onion, diced
- 1/4 cup currants or raisins
- 1 8-oz. can plain tomato sauce
- 1/4 to 1/2 tsp. cinnamon
- 12 to 14 6- to 8-inch corn or flour tortillas
To make Picadillo Taco Filling: Put soy “ground meat,” apple, onion, currants and tomato sauce into a saucepan, and bring to a boil over medium-high heat. Stir in cinnamon to taste. Reduce heat to low, cover and cook for 8 to 10 minutes, stirring often. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
To prepare Tortillas: Preheat a cast-iron skillet or griddle on stove over medium-high heat. Lay tortillas in single layers on skillet or griddle for about 10 seconds each. Turn and warm other side. Remove from heat, and wrap in a napkin or dishcloth until ready to assemble tacos.
To assemble, set a tortilla on a plate, and spoon on some filling. Top as desired, if using toppings, roll up and eat.
