Prepping Meals: Street Style Tacos

I am trying to come up with recipes that use up items many of us have in our food pantries that we bought, but might not know what to make with it. This recipe is good for both hiking, and eating at home during the forever quarantine. Or social distancing. Or for prepping. Use it for whatever comes up……

Street Style Fish Tacos


  • can oil packed yellow tuna
  • 2 to 4 “street” taco size tortillas*
  • 2 radishes, trimmed and thinly sliced*
  • Hot sauce, if desired


Heat a non-stick frypan lid or shallow pot over a low flame. Heat up your tortillas, flipping over. Keep an eye on them. Stash them somewhere warm (a scrap of foil weighs nothing and will keep them warm).

Open the can of tuna, and knock into the pan, with all the oil.

Stir often as it heats through. When sizzling, take off the heat and divide between the tortillas. Top with radishes. Sprinkle on your favorite hot sauce.

Serves 1’ish, maybe 2 if you have tiny appetites.


As for the tortillas, use what you like or prefer. We had flour on hand, so take 2. If you take corn tortillas, take 4, as doubling up the tortillas is the way to go.

You can use tuna in a can (with a pop top for ease in opening) or pouched, depending on what you have on hand.

Of course, you don’t have to use radishes if you don’t have them on hand. You can swap in any crunchy vegetable you might have. Grated carrots, thinly sliced cabbage and so on, are all long-term storage fresh vegetables.
