Jackfruit is extraordinary! It’s a fruit that has similar culinary properties to shredded pork or chicken when picked before it has a chance to ripen. It’s meaty in texture, yet has zero fat and zero cholesterol. When prepared correctly, you won’t believe you’re eating fruit!
1 package Upton’s Naturals Chili Lime Carnitas Jackfruit
3 taco-sized corn tortillas
1 cup chopped romaine lettuce
1 cup pinto beans, drained and rinsed
1/2 cup non-dairy Mexican-style cheese (try Follow Your Heart Fiesta Blend)
Pico de gallo (or diced tomatoes) for garnish
Non-dairy sour cream (try Forager or Kite Hill brands)
Sliced avocado or guacamole
1. Sauté jackfruit until warmed through. While sautéeing, heat up the beans in the microwave or on the stovetop.
2. In a clean pan, heat up the tortillas, flipping so each side gets a few char marks.
3. Evenly distribute the ingredients amongst the three tortillas and layer in this order: jackfruit, pinto beans, non-dairy cheese, pico de gallo, sour cream, pickled jalapeno, avocado, and cilantro.
