Before we get into this madness, this is the easy peasy recipe, not the hardcore perfectly authentic from scratch foodie recipe. If you’re a busy vegan mom knocking out a good dinner then this is your slow cooker jam.


Units Scale
  • 1 20 oz can of jackfruit in brine, drained
  • 1 7 oz can of chipotle pepers in adobo sauce
  • 1/2 cup of vegetable stock or water
  • 1/2 cup diced pineapple
  • 1 large onion, halved, then sliced thinly
  • 2 cloves of garlic
  • 1 packet of taco seasoning
  • teaspoon of olive oil
  • salt and pepper to taste


  1. Preheat your slow cooker on high
  2. Blend chipotles and adobo sauce
  3. Sauté the onions and the pineapple until they’re slightly browned
  4. Add everything to the slowcooker, cook on high for two hours
  5. Open the lid, pull apart jackfruit, stir, cook for another two hours.
  6. Serve on warm tortillas of your choice with salsa or escabeche


  • Most chipotle sauces and adobo sauces are vegan-friendly, but it’s a big world out there so check the label.
  • Add sliced jalapenos for more kick
  • Broil or grill the onions, jalapenos, and pineapples
  • Prep Time: 30 minutes
