Slow Cooker Jackfruit Tacos


I have wanted to cook with jackfruit for forever, but was so nervous to try it. I have got to say - I am so glad i finally did!

I found this recipe from The Foodie Physician and ended up tweaking it a little bit because I didn’t have all th ingredients/wanted to get rid of some stuff in the fridge! Slow cookers are my favorite way to meal prep because you don’t have to take a huge chunk of time out of your day, you can make a lot at once, and its easy cleanup!

this recipe did not disapoint - if you try it, let me know what you think!


  • 1 onion, chopped (I use onions)

  • 4-5 stalks celery

  • 1 can black beans

  • 2 15 oz cans Jackfruit

  • 2 cloves garlic

  • 1 can chipotle peppers in adobo, chopped (JUST THE PEPPERS)

  • 1 teaspoon of the adobo sauce from the can

  • 3/4 cup water

  • hot sauce, to taste (I used Aldi’s New Orleans Style)

  • cumin, oregano, salt, to taste

GOt the ingredients? Awesome. Literally all you have to do is chop everything up, pull apart the jackfruit,  and put it in the crockpot. cook on high for 2 hours, stirring occasionally. when it’s all done, place “meat” on a baking sheet and broil for 5 minutes.

enjoy :)
