  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.
