Shredded Jackfruit Burritos (Vegan)

I suspect the most notable aspect of this burrito is the use of jackfruit. My guess is it might be an ingredient you’re either completely onboard with, or not at all. Either way, mark my word, shredded jackfruit is a fascinating ingredient. People trying to reduce or eliminate meat from their diet tend to love it for its texture, which uncannily mimics pulled pork or shredded chicken. Out of the can, it has a flavor that is quite mild and neutral, making it a lot of fun to play with on the culinary front – blank slate and all. And because of that, my approach is usually to blast it with an assault of spices and flavor. Here you see it sautéed with lots of garlic and taco/chili seasoning to create a dynamic burrito filling that just about anyone can get behind. When shopping for jackfruit, I buy it canned, in water (easy to find it at places like Trader Joe’s) – just drain, and rinse before using.
