20 ozCan Green Jackfruit in Brine I used Trader Joe's Brand
¼tspGarlic and Onion PowderOptional- but I wanted a little more flavor.
½CupSalsa VerdeI also added a small can of fire roasted green chilis to my homemade salsa verde.
6Flour or Corn TortillasWarmed and kept warm in foil or a tortilla warmer
Toppings:Pickled Red Onions, Cilantro, Shredded Cabbage, or Black Beans.
Drain Jackfruit and rinse with water to remove saltiness from the brine.
In a skillet over medium heat, place oil and add rinsed jackfruit pieces.
Using your spatula break up the jackfruit pieces in the skillet. As it cooks it will soften more and shred easily. Add garlic and onion powder (optional).
Add Salsa verde and continue stirring until the salsa is absorbed and the jackfruit has softened and shredded.
Warm tortillas on a comal or flat skillet until heated and there's some charred marks. Keep them warm in a towel, foil, or tortilla warmer.
Serve the salsa verde jackfruit in the tortillas with toppings. I did pickled red onions and cilantro. The next day I added black beans and they paired perfectly.
Refrigerate any jackfruit leftovers. Then reheat in the microwave or skillet with a little oil. You can even broil the jackfruit 'meat' in the oven, for a crispier texture.The seeds and ends of the jackfruit are edible and soft just like the main section.
