These fajitas are anything but average. Fresh corn tortillas set the stage for chili-roasted peppers, onions, and jackfruit. If you’ve never had jackfruit before, you’re in for a treat! Related to the fig, it’s native to Southeast Asia and is composed of hundreds (or even thousands) of edible flowers. The texture will surprise you — cooked, it’s almost like pulled pork, and is absolutely delicious...especially with our tangy lime crema!
