I just love me some jackfruit tacos.  Look at these babies.  They look so amazing.  Actually, they would probably have been even prettier with tomatoes, but too late.  I already ate them.

This is the first time I have bothered to make a “recipe” because I usually just throw things together without paying a lot of attention to exact measurements. This particular brand has several flavors of jackfruit.  It is easily found at Whole Foods or online.  I picked Chili Lime Carnitas for tonight’s tacos.  I chose corn tortillas, because they are so tasty and also gluten free.

I threw the sauce together without a lot of measuring, but it came out pretty well.  The measurements below should be pretty close and you can adjust as you wish. I started with vegan mayo, vegan sour cream, lime juice, hot sauce, and fresh cilantro.  It didn’t have enough flavor, so I added a chipotle pepper in adobo sauce.  That certainly spiced things up. Seriously, beware the jalapenos.

After that, I heated the jackfruit in a pan and browned the tortillas in a skillet. Keep an eye on your corn tortillas.  You want them to have a bit of a char, but not burn.

It doesn’t take long for either one to heat through.  While they were warming, I chopped some lettuce, and  added some cilantro, lime, salt and pepper to some rice for a side.

After that, start piling…sauce, lettuce, vegan cheese if using, jackfruit, and some fresh cilantro.
