While we love seeing the creative recipes our friends and fans whip up with jackfruit, we’ve got to admit: At the end of the day, when we need a tasty and nutritious meal on the table ASAP, nothing beats simple (and simply delicious!) jackfruit tacos.
Making your own jackfruit tacos couldn’t be easier. All you need are your favorite tortillas, some fresh toppings (we love onions, cilantro, avocado and a squirt of lime) and one of our jackfruit meal starters. The taco purists out there may prefer our Tex-Mex Jackfruit or Smoked Pulled Jackfruit, but if you’re looking to try something new, consider our Lemon Garlic Jackfruit as a great plant-based alternative to grilled fish, or our Teriyaki Jackfruit for an Asian fusion-style treat.
