Carnitas anyone?! Carnitas literally translated mean “little meats,” but as a vegan, I am happy to change that term to “little bites” since no pigs were harmed during the creation of this recipe. The “meat” in this recipe is created with the use of Jackfruit. Jackfruit, when cooked and pulled with a fork, looks and tastes exactly like pulled pork!
Learn how to make easy Vegetarian Pulled Pork Tacos using jackfruit! Young jackfruit, much like tofu, has no taste and simply absorbs the flavor of whatever you cook it with. This means you can marinate young jackfruit to resemble whatever meat you need!
While Taco Bell isn’t what I (or anyone else) would call traditional Mexican cuisine, it is Tex-Mex and is now part of the Mexican-style food landscape. My vegan version of the Cheesy Gordita Crunch is a fun and delicious snack or meal alongside a stiff and fresh margarita!
