If you have never had Jackfruit and you like shredded chicken or pulled pork, its time to swap out those items in your recipes and replace them with canned jackfruit. Jackfruit sheds like easily and resembles canned chicken. I have used it to create these tasty lettuce wraps.



Chipotle Jackfruit Lettuce Wraps


1 14 oz can Jacfruit, drained

1 10 oz package black beans, drained and rinsed

1 15 oz can corn, drained

1/2 cup canned diced tomatoes, drained

4-5 canned chipotle peppers, seeded and chopped

1/4 cup chopped red onion

1/4 cup mayo (may add more if mixture seems dry)

Chopped fresh cilantro to taste

6-8 Romaine lettuce leaves

Place jackfruit in large bowl and shred with fork. Add remaining ingredients. Mix together. Wash romaine leaves and lay on plate.  Scoop filling evenly on leaves.  Top with guacamole if desired.
