Shredded Jackfruit Southwest Tacos
Total Time: 20 mins
Hands-on Time: 10 mins
Makes: 4 servings
1 tablespoon oil
1 yellow onion, thinly sliced
4 cloves garlic, minced
2 cups jackfruit, chopped
1 package Simply Organic Southwest Taco Simmer Sauce
8 corn tortillas
1/2 avocado, sliced, for topping
1/2 small red onion, thinly sliced, for topping
2 tablespoons cilantro, chopped, for topping
Juice of 1 lime wedge, for topping
Simply Organic Smoked Paprika or hot sauce, for topping (optional)
1. In a large skillet over medium-high heat, heat oil. Add onion and garlic. Sauté, stirring frequently, for about 5 minutes, until the onions have softened and are beginning to brown.
2. Add jackfruit and simmer sauce. Stir until well blended. Cover the pan, reduce heat and let simmer for about 5 minutes, until the jackfruit softens a bit.
3. Use a potato masher to mash the jackfruit until a shredded texture is achieved. If it's wetter than desired, cook it a little longer. If it's drier than desired, add a splash of water.
4. Warm tortillas in foil. Add a scoop of the jackfruit to each tortilla, then top with avocado, onion, cilantro and a squeeze of lime. For additional spice, add a pinch of smoked paprika or a splash of hot sauce.
