Thanks! Share it with your friends!


*Makes 8 tacos
2 cans of Jackfruit in Water (NOT syrup)
2 tsps Seasoned Salt
2 tsps Chili Powder
1 tsp Paprika
1 tsp Smoked Parika
1 tsp cumin
1 tsp oregano
1 tsp garlic powder
1 tsp onion powder

Heat jackfruit in a skillet on medium heat for 8- 10 min with 2 Tbsp of coconut oil. Once the jackfruit has softened, add the spices and mix together. Continue to heat jackfruit for another 10-15 minutes, or until the chunks begin to fall apart. Many of the chunks will pull apart on their own, but if you want, you can use a fork to speed up the process. Once the jackfruit is tender enough to pull apart, yet crispy on the edges, make into tacos and top with your favorite fixings!

Mari L says:

What do you season your pan with? I've seen people who use lard on theirs. *barf 😟 Mine is in desperate need of some TLC. Would greatly appreciate a vegan option. Thanks in advance.

I made this tonight!
It is tasty and awesome πŸ™‚
I've been vegan for awhile now, but have only worked with Jackfruit a few times.
I didn't have smoked paprika so I substituted with liquid smoke, everything else was the same. I also melted a little Daiya cheddar in there. With a little tweaking on this recipe I think it will be perfect! Thank you for getting me closer to jackfruit perfection! πŸ™‚

Ahhhh THANK YOU! You don't how happy I am to see this.. Since going vegan, taco carnitas were one of my top favorite comfort foods. This looks unbelievable! My mouth watered instantly.. Thank you, thank you! πŸ™πŸ˜­β€β€

Ashley Di Buduo says:

Is there a reason you don't mix the spices together? Does it make a difference or should they not be mixed?

Mike Edwards says:

Wow. That looks delicious! Can any explain to me the taste of jackfruit, without all the seasoning and stuff. Also, does it natural resemble chicken like that? I’m 7 Days in on my plant-based diet. Thanks.
