I had the idea for these street tacos on one of those days where I really wanted meat. But with brands like Impossible Meat and Beyond Meat, I knew that there had to be a healthy and tasty alternative to satisfy my cravings that day. As I was perusing the shelves at my local grocery store, I saw that Upton Naturals has a line of flavored seitan meat alternatives. You may have heard about Upton Naturals in my other recipe article Simple Plates Fantastic Vegetarian Sliders. They marinate jack fruit in a way that resembles meat. It’s ok but not great. But, I decided I wanted to give their seitan a try anyways.
(Makes 6-8 tacos)
- 1 Package of Upton’s Naturals Chorizo Seitan
- 1/4 Onion finely chopped
- 1 Package of Upton’s Naturals BBQ Jackfruit
- 6-8 Mini corn tortillas
- I Bunch of cilantro
- 1 Tbsp of Butter
- Curry Habenero Creamy Hot Sauce from Blue Top Brand (Optional)

In a heated frying pan, heat two tablespoons of cooking oil until fully heated. Add chopped onion and cook until tender and translucent (cover with lid). Add in seitan and stir occasionally. Cook until seitan is fully heated.
In a separate skillet, warm tortillas over low heat.
Top tortilla with a generous portion of seitan mixture and top with a few sprigs of cilantro. Option to add your favorite salsa or hot sauce.
