One 10-ounce package frozen jackfruit, thawed

1 tablespoon olive oil 

1 teaspoon chili powder 

1 teaspoon garlic salt 

2 tablespoons jarred medium salsa 

Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper 

Tortillas or hard taco shells, for serving 

Topping suggestions: shredded iceberg lettuce, shredded Cheddar, guacamole, sour cream, pico de gallo 


  1. If the jackfruit is not already shredded, use a knife to roughly chop, or pulse a few times in a food processor.
  2. Add the olive oil to a medium skillet over medium-high heat. Stir in the jackfruit, chili powder and garlic salt and let cook 3 minutes. Stir in the salsa, then season with salt and pepper and turn the heat to low. Let cook for an additional 3 minutes. Serve on tortillas or taco shells with desired toppings.
