I am becoming a huge fan of jackfruit. I loved the BBQ Pulled Jackfruit, and I wanted to give try the jackfruit out in a carnitas recipe. I was really pleased with the results. These could also work as a topping for nachos, or rolled up in a burrito. This is a great meal to throw into the crock pot before work, and it will be ready for you when you get home.
