Jackfruit is a vegetarian's best friend! If you aren't familiar with it, it's a large fruit with a prickly outside but you can buy it canned from Asian grocery stores (like 99 Ranch) which is much easier to cook with. Now the awesome thing about jackfruit is it will taste like whatever you marinate it in and it has the consistency of pork. It gets soft and shreds just like pork so it's perfect to make carnitas with. It's also perfect for the crockpot which is always nice to come home to. But what do you do when you leave the house early in the morning and don't get home until about 12 hours later? Mike had the brilliant idea to use a christmas tree timer! It worked perfectly and we came home to delicious jackfruit just waiting to be placed into warmed tortillas and topped with cilantro, avocado, and lime.
