Servings 4 tostadas


  • 2 20 oz. cans jackfruit in brine (drained and hard parts removed)
  • 4 tostada shells
  • 1 can black beans
  • 1/2 cup corn
  • 1/3-1/4 cup BBQ Sauce of your choice
  • diced red onion to taste
  • 1 avocado diced
  • diced tomato to taste
  • fresh cilantro for garnish


  • Preheat oven to 450 degrees
  • Begin by trimming each piece of jackfruit, removing the hard parts and place them in a medium sized pan.
  • Once all chunks of jackfruit have been trimmed. Place them on the stove over a low-medium heat with a few drops or oil (or water) to cook them. Use the back of a fork to shred the jackfruit while it's cooking. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
  • Once the jackfruit has finished cooking, place it on a baking pan lined with parchment paper, creating an even layer. Cook in the oven for 20-25 minutes.
  • While the jackfruit is cooking, begin prepping the add-ons like the corn, cilantro, tomatoes, onions and avocados.
  • Rinse and drain the canned black beans. Place them in a medium-sized bowl and use a potato masher (or the back of a fork/spoon) to mash them. If the mixture begins to crumble, splash it with a few drops of vegetable broth to bind it together.
  • Once the jackfruit has finished cooking, remove it from the oven and transfer the mixture to a bowl. Pour BBQ sauce of your choice over the jackfruit and combine until all pieces are coated.
  • Start building your tostadas beginning with the mashed black beans, jackfruit, then veggies. Garnish with Cilantro. Enjoy!
