  • 4 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 tablespoon cumin
  • 1 tablespoon chili powder
  • 1 tablespoon smoked paprika
  • 1 tablespoon oregano
  • 1 chipotle in adobo sauce, finely chopped

For serving:

  • Corn tortillas, warmed
  • Avocado, sliced
  • Corn
  • Lime wedges
  • Cilantro
  • Greek yogurt or sour cream

Instructions

  1. Shred the jackfruit using your fingers or a knife so that it looks similar to pulled pork consistency.*
  2. Add shredded jackfruit, onion, garlic, cumin, chili powder, smoked paprika, oregano, chipotle pepper, tomato paste, soy sauce and vegetable broth to the Instant Pot and stir to combine.
  3. Secure lid onto Instant Pot. Close the steam vent (should be on sealing). Set to high pressure for 8 minutes. Allow natural pressure release for 10-15 minutes.
  4. After 10-15 minutes, use quick release valve to release steam.
  5. Once pressure is released, open lid and stir jackfruit. Season with salt, to taste.

For the tacos:

  1. Assemble tacos by evenly distributing jackfruit carnitas, avocado, corn, lime, and cilantro among corn tortillas. Serve immediately.

Notes

You could also shred the jackfruit with a fork after it is done cooking.
