How to Make Jackfruit Tacos | Vegan Tacos | Vegan Taco Meat | Spicy Garlic Chipotle Jackfruit Tacos

Hello Foodies,

         Jackfruit is a great meat substitute, packed with fiber, plant-based protein, and they’re also so healthy. These vegan tacos are made with some of my favorite ingredients, like jackfruit, avocado, and tortillas. 

I prefer to cook jackfruit in my Instant Pot, but you can use a regular pot or use an Indian pressure cooker too. I have used fresh green jackfruit, cut at home, and used. But if you could not find a fresh one, then just buy the canned raw jackfruit. They take just 25 minutes to whip up for a perfect weeknight meal. So delicious even meat-eaters will be surprised with this jackfruit recipe that is packed with flavor and will love this! 

Video Recipe:

We(my hubby and I) love jackfruit(ripe & unripe) and never tire of them and am always looking for ways to add this superfood to our diet. I always use avocado to make most of my Mexican recipes because we love it and it’s a great source of healthy fat. Cubed avocado is great, but as we like guacamole I used it instead of vegan cream.

These tacos can be made gluten-free. Just use corn tortillas instead of the wheat flour ones. They will taste almost the same and you’ll enjoy a completely gluten-free and delicious meal!
