Vegan MoFo – You Don’t Know Jack

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???

    I live in longbeach and work in Irvine. I am also a huge fan of the sea birds food truck. I was wondering which store in SoCal you bought the jack fruit in? I am having troubles finding it. Thank you! – Stacy
