Ingredients

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

Tortillas

  • 12 to 14 6- to 8-inch corn or flour tortillas

Toppings, optional

Preparation

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.
