“Craving carnita- style tacos? Jackfruit is for you. Very similar to the texture of pulled pork, jackfruit will blow your mind when you add a few spices to it. It’s like tofu in the sense that it’s very neutral in flavor and will soak up whatever spices you throw at it!” ~Tasha


  • 2 cans organic jackfruit
  • corn tortillas
  • 1 T chipotle powder
  • 1 T chili powder
  • 1 T nutritional yeast
  • 1/2 t cumin
  • 1 t garlic powder
  • 1/2 t smoked paprika
  • 3 t tomato paste
  • 1 t soy sauce
  • 3 T olive oil
  • 1/2 c red bell pepper, cut into long thin slices
  • 1/2 c red onion, diced
  • salt and black pepper to taste


  1. Open up cans of jackfruit, pour out excess liquid and cut up jackfruit into small pieces long-ways, resembling pulled pork.
  2. Pour jackfruit into a large mixing bowl, add in spices and 1 T olive oil. Mix thoroughly.
  3. Heat pan to medium-high and add 2 T olive oil. Add red onion and sauté until slightly translucent (1-2 minutes).
  4. Add spiced jackfruit, sauté for 5 minutes on medium-high, stirring often.
  5. Add red bell pepper, cook for another 5 minutes, stirring often. Turn heat to low.
  6. In a separate pan, on medium-high heat, put 1 t of oil in the pan and heat up the corn tortillas.
  7. Fill tortillas with jackfruit and ENJOY!
