The best jackfruit tacos made with an untraditional shortcut ingredient — barbecue sauce! Just blend the sauce ingredients, smother the jackfruit in it, and roast until crispy-browned. Both vegans and meat-lovers will love this.

Shopping List
    For the Jackfruit
  • 1 (20 ounce) can green jackfruit
  • 1/4 cup classic barbecue sauce
  • 1 chipotle, packed in adobo sauce
  • 3 tablespoons pineapple juice (or chopped pineapple)
  • 1 garlic clove, chopped
  • 1/2 tablespoon chili powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon EACH cumin and oregano
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt For the Rest
  • 4 taco-sized tortillas (corn or flour) Optional Toppings
  • white onion, chopped pineapple, salsa, cilantro, and/or guacamole

Instructions
  1. Step 1: Drain and rinse the jackfruit very well. Cut the tougher pointy tips off of each triangular piece of jackfruit and set them aside. Break up the remaining jackfruit with your hands for a shredded texture. Go back to your pointy tips and slice them very thinly and add them to the rest of the jackfruit.
  2. Step 2: Combine the barbecue sauce, chipotle, pineapple, garlic, chili powder, cumin, oregano, and salt in a small blender until smooth.
  3. Step 3: Combine the jackfruit and sauce in a mixing bowl until well coated. Marinate at least 10 minutes, up to overnight.
  4. Step 4: Preheat the oven to 425 degrees Fahrenheit. Spread the jackfruit onto a large rimmed baking sheet, spreading it out as possible to ensure even browning. Roast for 20 minutes, stirring after the first 10 minutes. Those crispy pieces are exactly what we're looking for.
  5. Serve: Taco time! Build your tacos by warming the tortillas over an open flame or dry skillet until pliable. Add the warm jackfruit and your favorite toppings. Enjoy.
