  • 2 20-ounce cans young green jackfruit
  • 1/2 Red Onion
  • 3 Garlic Cloves, minced
  • 1/2 tsp Smoked Paprika
  • 1/2 tsp Chili Powder
  • 1/2 tsp Dried Oregano
  • 1/4 tsp Red Crushed Pepper
  • 1/4 tsp Sea Salt
  • 1/4 tsp Fresh Ground Pepper
  • 1 cup Homemade Barbecue Sauce or your favorite barbecue sauce
  • 1/3 cup Vegetable Broth
  • 1-2 tbsp Cooking Oil

Optional Ingredients for Assembling Tacos


  • First, prepare the jackfruit by pouring it into a strainer and thoroughly rinsing to remove any debris, salt, or liquid remains
  • Transfer the jackfruit into a large bowl. Then, using a knife or your hands, pull apart (or slice) the jackfruit into thin pieces. (Do not discard the core or seeds)
  • Season the jackfruit with the seasonings listed above and add the barbecue sauce. Mix well to ensure all the jackfruit is evenly coated. 
  • In a large skillet over medium heat, add 1-2 tablespoons of oil of choice. Then, add the chopped garlic and onion and sauté for 2-3 minutes, until golden. 
  • Add the seasoned jackfruit to the pan and then pour in the vegetable broth. Mix the ingredients and then cover the pan for 5 minutes on medium-low heat. 
  • After the vegetable broth has been absorbed by the jackfruit, turn up the heat to medium-high and sauté the jackfruit for 3-5 minutes, until slightly browned on the outside.
  • Place generous portions of the pulled bbq jackfruit onto your prepared tortilla. Add toppings of your choice and Enjoy!
