A healthy and filling Mexican inspired dinner!


Ingredients

  • 1 teaspoon olive oil
  • 1/2 small onion, any kind you like
  • 1 (20 oz) can jackfruit, drained
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • 3/4 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 3/4 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt, divided
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1/2 cup chunky salsa, divided
  • 1/4 + 1 tablespoon water
  • 1 (15 oz) can pinto beans, drained and rinsed
  • 3 tablespoons Nutritional Yeast
  • 12 corn tortillas

Instructions

  1. Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. Heat a large skillet over medium heat and add olive oil and onion.  Cook onion for 3 minutes and then add the jackfruit, spices, 1/4 teaspoon salt, pepper, 1/4 cup of salsa and water.  Stir until combined and let cook until jackfruit is tender, about 10-15 minutes, stirring occasionaly.
  3. Use a spatula to break apart the jackfruit until it resembles pulled meat.  Add the pinto beans, nutritional yeast, remaining 1/4 cup salsa and 1/4 teaspoon salt.  Stir until combined and cook for about 5 minutes.
  4. Place 1/4 cup of the mixture in the center of each tortilla, spread it out into a little log and roll tightly.  You may need to heat your tortillas in the microwave or on the stovetop in order for them to roll without breaking.
  5. Place taquitos on a large baking sheet and bake until browned on each side, about 20 minutes, flipping once.
