Mexican Sloppy Joe Tacos

Mexican Sloppy Joe Tacos Pin Word

Mexican Sloppy Joe Tacos sound unusual don’t they?  Well, that is because they are. The mixture is a taco filling but has a few unusual ingredients.  It is based on a sloppy joe recipe and has some Mexican spicy added.  I buy shredded cabbage mix to put on these tacos.  For some reason the combination is really good together.  Just hold it over your plate and enjoy.

Mexican Sloppy Joe Tacos

Prep Time: 10 minutes

Cook Time: 10 minutes

Total Time: 20 minutes

Yield: Filling for about 6 to 8 Tacos

Serving Size: 2 Tacos

Mexican Sloppy Joe Tacos


1 package (about 10 oz) beefless ground beef

1 8 oz. can diced tomatoes

1/2 cup of your favorite salsa

1 Tablespoon vegan Worcestershire sauce

2 Tablespoons red wine vinegar

1 Tablespoon organic granulated beet sugar


taco shells




So so so easy. Put all of the ingredients in a skillet.

Heat for 15 minutes.

Serve on taco shells.


Heat through right before serving. I put the cabbage in the shell first. Then scoop in as much filling as you like leaving room for avocado and maybe some onions. Anything you like. Really good served along side my Spanish Rice and Pinto Beans Recipe.


Let cool to room temperature and then pack in rigid sided containers as defined in my article


Remove from the freezer and put in the refrigerator a few (4 to 6) hours before serving.

Put the filling in a saucepan to heat through and serve.

  1. Omg…I am most definitely going to make these! They look super delicious, and they’re so easy to make. Your pictures are so bright and pretty as well. Thanks for the inspiration. :)

  2. Beefless ground beef–do you mean TVP? Or is there a specific brand? I love these and will be featuring them Friday with my Cinco de Mayo roundup.

    • Hi, I never know what to call the ‘fake’ beef, chicken and sausages and try to stick to one overall title for my tags. I usually use Gardein meatless ground beef and I did in this recipe. Thank you so much for thinking of me in your round up.

  3. Hi Ginny! These look amazing!
