  • 2 tbsp cooking oil, plus more for brushing
  • 1 cup white onion, diced
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 small jalapeño, seeded and diced
  • 1 (20 ounce) can jackfruit, drained and patted dry
  • 2 tsp chili powder
  • 1 tsp cumin
  • 1/2 tsp smoked paprika
  • 1/4 tsp cayenne pepper
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 2 tbsp fresh cilantro, minced
  • 1/4 cup salsa verde, homemade or storebought
  • juice of 1 lime
  • 12 (8") corn tortillas
  • 1/2 batch Chipotle Ranch Dressing
  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. Lightly oil a baking pan and set aside. 

  2. In a cast iron skillet, heat up oil over medium heat. Once the oil is hot, add onions and garlic and sauté until onions are translucent and fragrant about 5 minutes.  

  3. Add jalapeños, jackfruit, spices, and salt, stirring to evenly coat the jackfruit. Cook, over medium heat, until jackfruit begins to brown slightly around the edges, about 5 more minutes.  

  4. Remove from heat and stir in cilantro, salsa verde, and fresh lime juice. 

  5. While jackfruit is cooking, wrap your tortillas in a towel and heat in the microwave for 30-60 seconds until tortillas are soft and pliable. 

  6. Place about 3-4 tablespoons of jackfruit filling along the bottom third of the tortilla. Tightly wrap the tortillas, push a toothpick through the middle, and place them seam-side down on the prepared baking sheet. Repeat until all the filling is gone. 

  7. Brush the tops of each taquito with olive oil and bake for 15-20 minutes until golden brown and crispy. 

  8. While taquitos are baking, make the Chipotle Ranch according to these instructions. 

  9. Let taquitos cool slightly before serving.
