Creamy Chipotle Jackfruit Tacos

Creamy Chipotle Jackfruit Tacos


Jackfruit has become very popular in the vegan/vegetarian world as a natural meat substitute. The ‘meat’ from this fruit is very similar texture to that of a pulled pork or chicken. So, it’s easy to use a plant based substitute for pulled pork/chicken BBQ sandwiches, salads, tacos…you name it.


The only disadvantage to Jackfruit is that the process of extracting the meat can be quite laborious. Enter : Trader Joes. Trader Joes now carries Jackfruit in a can! It is not flavored (like some of the other pre packaged Jackfruit), so allows you to use it plain to build recipes.


It’s been consistently rainy here in San Francisco, and I’ve been craving something that is nostalgic to Spring (aka 5 margaritas and a few tacos). If I haven’t mentioned this before, Mexican is one of my go-to weeknight cuisines. As a pescatarian, there are so many options. I know a lot of Vegans who cook predominantly Mexican cuisine. The spices and combinations yield in a powerful, filling, meal.


I decided to use my canned jackfruit to curb my taco craving, and created this delicious, flavorful, jackfruit taco recipe. This recipe is super easy to make, filling, and pretty healthy! Definitely a weeknight staple in my household.

{Creamy Chipotle Jackfruit Tacos}

Serves 2


  • 15 oz can jackfruit

  • 1 tbsp cumin

  • 1/2 red onion

  • 1 tsp minced garlic

  • Chipotle Adobo Sauce

    • 3 1/2 chipotles in adobo

    • 2 tbs sour cream

    • Juice from 1 lime

  • 5-6 corn tortillas

  • 1 tbsp olive oil

  • Avocado to garnish

  • Salt and pepper to taste


  1. Make the chipotle adobo sauce by blending the chiles, sour cream, and lime juice in a blender or food processor until smooth.

  2. Chop the red onions and mince the garlic. Add to pan with olive oil over medium high heat. Sauté until the onions are caramelized (about 5 minutes).

  3. While the onions are caramelizing, drain the jackfruit and pull apart to resemble pulled meat.

  4. Add jackfruit and chipotle adobo sauce to pan, stir to combine.

  5. Reduce heat to medium, and cook for 5 minutes or until jackfruit is heated throughout.

  6. Heat your tortillas directly over burner for 10 seconds/side (this is my favorite way to get warm, roasted tortillas.

  7. Distribute jackfruit meat amongst tortillas and garnish with avocados.
