Easy, Delicious Spicy Jackfruit Tacos

Jul 26, 2018

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!

Ingredients for Jackfruit Tacos:

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

Optional Garnish
Non-dairy sour cream (try Forager or Kite Hill brands)
Sliced avocado or guacamole
Cilantro
Pickled jalapeno

Instructions for Jackfruit Tacos:

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.
4. Enjoy!
