Jackfruit is a fruit grown in SE Asia. When ripe, they are sweet, so for savory recipes use young, green jackfruit in a can, in a brine, NOT a syrup.
When young it has a neutral and slightly savory flavor that picks up all the flavors of a dish, and the texture shreds just like meat.
Where do I buy jackfruit?
You can find it at Asian supermarkets, Whole Foods, Trader Joe's, Thrive Market, or Amazon.
Some more common grocery stores carry it, too.
Trader Joe's by far has the best value that I've found!
Shred the jackfruit between your fingers, breaking apart any hearty bases, too.
Heat oil in a large skillet, then add onion and garlic.
Add the spices and allow them to toast for about 30 seconds.
Add the black beans and shredded jackfruit to the skillet, stir to combine.
Add the veggie stock and reduce for a few minutes. Taste test for salt levels, too!
Remove from heat and get ready to serve the filling.
Place the filling in tortillas, add rice if desired, and top with all the toppings!
