What do you know about Jackfruit? I didn’t know much about it until I had the wonderful jackfruit tacos from Seabirds food truck. Since then I’ve been obsessing about making them myself. Step one in the process is finding canned jackfruit…if you have a Thai Market near you they probably carry it. That’s where I found mine – – 2 cans cost less than $3 which is much better than the on-line price I found. This is the type I used, make sure whatever brand you buy it’s the young (green) jackfruit packed in brine, not the sweet kind.
I followed this recipe exactly and they were quite tasty served with a squeeze of lime, avocado and cilantro. I think next time I would cut back on the chili powder a little. Now I have a boatload of taco filling that I have to figure out what to do with, I’m thinking a jackfruit taco salad???
