Terrific Picadillo Tacos


These appealing tacos contain a sweet-savory filling that kids will enjoy. Keep tortillas warm before filling so they are pliable.



  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. To assemble, set a tortilla on a plate, and spoon on some filling. Top as desired, if using toppings, roll up and eat.
