These Vegan Pulled Jackfruit Tacos are so tasty and moist and yummy and did I say tasty? You'd swear they were made with juicy pulled pork that got to cook slowly for hours, when in fact, they only take minutes to make...
Shred/tear the jackfruit into little pieces with your fingers. Do not discard the core or seeds as they are perfectly edible and even add to the overall texture of the mixture.
Heat the oil in a large saute pan set over medium-high heat. Once hot, add the onions and sauté until softened and slightly browned, about 3 minutes. Add the jackfruit and spices, stir well and cook for about a minute to develop the flavors of the spices, then pour in the water, lime juice and liquid smoke.
Bring to a slow simmer, cover the pan and simmer until practically all the liquid has evaporated, about 5 minutes.
Remove the lid and continue cooking until all the liquid has evaporated, smashing the jackfruit a little bit with a wooden spoon just to finish breaking it up, especially the seeds.
Remove from heat and allow to rest for 5 to 10 minutes before using. This will give you plenty of time to work on the rest of the stuff that you need to make your tacos come to life!
To assemble the tacos:
Warm the tortillas according to the package directions or using your favorite method. Then, fill each tortilla with a generous scoop of the jackfruit mixture and garnish with the chopped onion, tomatoes and peppers, some cilantro, and a squeeze of lime juice. Or you can use your very own favorite taco toppings!
