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. Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. When hot, add in the onions and garlic and sauté for about 5 minutes until the onions have softened and are beginning to brown.

    2. Add the chopped jackfruit and simmer sauce and stir. Cover the pan, reduce heat and let it simmer until the jackfruit softens a bit, about 5 minutes.

    3. Now take a potato masher and smash all the jackfruit up to get that shredded texture. If you find it a bit wet, just cook a little longer. If you find it a little dry, just add a splash of water.

    4. Warm tortillas in foil. Add a scoop of the jackfruit and top with avocado, red onion, cilantro and a squeeze of lime. For additional spice, add a pinch of smoked paprika or a splash of hot sauce.
