Equipment

Ingredients
  

  • 1 pineapple peeled and cored
  • 1 large white onion peeled and roughly chopped
  • 3 cloves garlic peeled and roughly chopped
  • 1/4 cup apple cider vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons achiote paste
  • 2 tablespoons smoked paprika
  • 1 tablespoon dried oregano
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1 teaspoon ground coriander
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 1 pound seitan sliced into thin strips
  • 8-10 small corn tortillas
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro
  • Lime wedges for serving

Instructions
 

  • Preheat the oven to 400°F.
  • Cut the pineapple into small chunks and add them to a blender or food processor along with the onion, garlic, apple cider vinegar, achiote paste, smoked paprika, oregano, cumin, coriander, salt, and black pepper. Blend until smooth.
  • Heat the vegetable oil in a large skillet or griddle over medium-high heat. Add the seitan strips and cook for 3-4 minutes on each side, until browned and crispy.
  • Pour the pineapple mixture over the seitan and stir to coat. Cook for another 5-7 minutes, stirring occasionally, until the seitan is fully coated and the mixture has thickened.
  • Spread the seitan mixture out on a baking sheet and bake for 10-12 minutes, until the edges are slightly charred and crispy.
  • Warm the tortillas on the skillet or griddle for a few seconds on each side.
  • To assemble the tacos, spoon the seitan mixture onto each tortilla and top with chopped cilantro. Serve with lime wedges on the side.
