Equipment

  • Skillet
  • Potato Masher

Ingredients
  

For Filling

  • 2 20-ounce cans Green Jackfruit (in water or brine, drained, rinsed, and chopped)
  • 1 tablespoon Vegetable Oil
  • 1 Yellow Onion (sliced)
  • 4 cloves Garlic (minced)
  • ½ cup Vegetable Broth or Water
  • 1 tablespoon Agave
  • ½ Lime (juiced)
  • 2 teaspoons Chili Powder
  • 1 teaspoon Cumin
  • 1 teaspoon Smoked Paprika
  • ¼ teaspoon Salt

For Tacos

  • 8 Taco Shells
  • 1 Avocado (sliced)
  • ¼ Red Onion (thinly sliced)
  • ¼ cup Cilantro (roughly chopped)
  • Lime Wedges

Instructions
 

  • Chop the jackfruit into thin slices. Slice them from the core to the edge. This will help to give a shredded texture.
  • Take a large skillet and heat oil on a medium-high flame. Add onions and garlic to hot oil and saute them for 5 minutes till they turn brown and soft.
  • Add jackfruit, broth, agave, lemon juice, and other spices and cover. Reduce the heat to a minimum until half of the liquid is evaporated and jackfruit becomes soft. 
  • Using a potato masher, mash the jackfruit to get them shredded. If the jackfruit is wet, cook them more and if they seem dry, add some vegetable broth to it.
  • Take taco shells and warm them. Add a scoop of the mixture into the taco. Top them with avocado slice, red onions, cilantro, and squeeze a lemon. 
  • Tacos are ready to serve.
