Add olive oil to a large soup pot and heat over medium heat. Once the oil is hot, add jackfruit, red onion, red bell pepper, garlic, and jalapeño. Sauté for 3-5 minutes until the jackfruit begins to brown and the onions are translucent and fragrant. Stir in the spices.
Add the black beans, corn, tomatoes, green chilies, and rice. Stir in the Mexican-Style Simple Starter and minced cilantro. Bring to a boil, cover, and reduce heat to a simmer. Simmer for 20-25 minutes until all the liquid has absorbed and the rice is fully cooked.
Divide into 6 bowls and top with topping of choice. I like to add vegan cheese, tomatoes, cilantro, avocado, and salsa. You can also add vegan sour cream, sliced jalapeños, and crispy corn tortillas.
