Easy and awesome recipe - this came out better than the jackfruit tacos I had at a fancy vegan restaurant in LA! The jackfruit came out flavorful and tender. I used homemade taco seasoning.

Quite delicious. I like the instructions to rinse the jackfruit first. It takes away that brine flavor. I shredded the fruit instead of cutting into pieces. It gives it a nice texture for tacos ...

I made this following the recipe as directed. It was excellent!!
