I had heard about people using jackfruit in wraps, and tacos and I was a bit skeptical.  I thought I would give it a shot, and use a pulled pork recipe I used to make before switching to plant based.  I was so happy with the results.  You can find jackfruit at any Asian grocery store.  It is really cheap, and the end result is worth the wait.

Estimated Cost Per Serving: $1.10
