These delectable al pastor tacos aren’t made with pork but rather with chunks of jackfruit that do a brilliant impersonation of the carnitas: succulent, slightly chewy, and radiant with flavour.

Jackfruit Tumerico Carnitas Tacos and Assembly
In a blender, add the chilis, garlic, oregano, achiote powder, olive oil, lime juice, water, and salt and blend until smooth.
Cut an entire jackfruit into large chunks and add to a standing mixer. Mash fruit for roughly 5 minutes or until it looks like pulled meat.
Add salt and pepper.
Take the jackfruit chunks and fry them for 1 minute.
Sauté the chunks of pineapple in a large pan on high heat for roughly 5 minutes.
Drizzle in the adobo sauce.
Add the jackfruit carnitas to the pan.
Mix well and let cook for 2 minutes on medium heat.
Serve the mixture on top of a tortilla.
Garnish with salsa and cashew cream.
