Servings 8 tacos


  • 2 20 oz. cans Jackfruit in brine or water seeds removed, drained and squeezed dry with a clean dish cloth
  • ¼ cup jerk marinade
  • 2 ripe sweet plantains sliced and skin removed
  • enough oil for frying
  • 1 green bell pepper sliced
  • 1 red bell pepper sliced
  • ½ red onion sliced
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • tortillas for serving
  • fresh cilantro for garnish (optional)


  • Preheat oven to 425°
  • In a large bowl, add the squeezed jackfruit, and jerk marinade in a bowl. Stir to combine.
  • Spread the seasoned jackfruit over a baking sheet lined with parchment paper and transfer to the oven to bake for 25 minutes.
  • While the jackfruit is in the oven, heat a large pan of oil (about ½-¾ inches high) over medium heat. Once the oil is hot, add the sliced plantains and cook until both sides are golden brown, flipping over halfway. Transfer the cooked plantains to a plate lined with paper towels.
  • In another large pan, sauté the peppers and onions over medium heat until charred and softened considerably. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Set aside.
  • Warm tortillas in a pan or according to personal preference. Build tacos with the jackfruit, plantains and sautéed vegetables. Garnish with fresh cilantro. Enjoy!
