Jackfruit Tacos

  • 2 20 oz cans green jackfruit
  • 2 tbsp high heat oil (like canola or grapeseed)
  • 8 corn tortillas (can use flour or tostada shells)

Optional Toppings

  • sliced avocado
  • shredded red cabbage

  • Preheat grill over high heat (400-500 degrees).
  • Combine all the seasoning for the BBQ dry rub together in a small bowl.  Set Aside. 
  • Make BBQ sauce according to directions. Set Aside.
  • Drain and rinse your canned jackfruit. Cut off the hard pieces off the ends of each piece of jackfruit. Add jackfruit to a large bowl. 
  • Drizzle oil across and very gently combine.  Sprinkle the dry rub across and very gently combine. Push 5-6 pieces of seasoned jackfruit onto a skewer. Repeat until no pieces of jackfruit remain. 
  • Place skewers onto grill and cook for 3-4 minutes.  Carefully flip and then cook another 3-4 minutes. 
  • After cooked, push the jackfruit off the skewers and into the BBQ sauce.  Stir together. It’s ok with the jackfruit breaks apart here in the sauce. 
  • Cook for 20 minutes, stirring often. Turn down heat if it starts to stick.
