2 Tbsp ketchup

½ C radishes, sliced

1 C minced cilantro

Juice of 2 limes

White sauce

½ C avocado oil mayonnaise by Primal Kitchen

Juice of 1 lime

½ tsp onion powder

Salt and pepper to taste


  • Prep all your vegetables (add a little lime juice to each prep)
  • Strain jackfruit, place in a pot with water to cover contents. Set to high heat. Let boil for 1-2 minutes, turn off heat, strain and wash with cool water. Once cooled, pull apart. Set aside.
  • If you prefer a wetter jackfruit filling add the fire roasted tomatoes. If you prefer a dryer meatier feel do not add it. Place oil in a pan, set to high heat, sauté onions for 1-2 minutes. Add the jackfruit, toss for 1-2 minutes. Add the taco seasoning, toss, once well coated add the ketchup, paprika, salt and pepper. Cook for about 5 minutes. Turn off heat and let cool.
  • Place tortillas on a pan in the oven at 350 degrees on broil for 5 minutes.
  • For your hatch chilies, remove stem, slice in half across, scrape off all seeds (will be very spicy if you don’t).
  • Build your tacos! Style as desired. Recommendation: start with jackfruit, slice of hatch Chile, top with cabbage, onions, mango, radish, white sauce, cilantro and squeeze of lime. Enjoy!
