These shredded jackfruit tacos are hearty and full of fresh flavor. Cooked in our tomato-based Southwest Taco Simmer Sauce, the jackfruit takes on the warm notes of chili peppers, rich cumin and savory oregano.


  • 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.
