Jackfruit Carne Asada

Sometimes, you just really need a taco. We’re not messing with anything fancy or over-complicated, just some slow roasted jackfruit exploding with spice to kick you back into reality after months in quarantine.

  • 2 lb. jackfruit pulled apart
  • corn tortillas, onions, cilantro, and limes to serve


  • Preheat oven to 350°.
  • Add your can of chipotle peppers in adobo sauce to a food processor and pulse a few times, until peppers are broken up.
