This is an absolute favorite recipe for my kids and family and a total crowd pleaser! My extended family loves it so much that they request my Jackfruit Mushroom Taco Meat recipe often.
This is a recipe you want to make for a family gathering, potluck or party. You will not get any complaints from your guests. In fact, you will probably struggle to make enough.
My trick is to make plenty of the fillings and keep several extra boxes of the ONLY clean taco shells in the market by Siete Foods in my pantry. There are several parts to this recipe, but it should not take you more than an hour to make all the filling ingredients and go from there.
Jackfruit Mushroom Taco Meat Filling
- 6 cups diced mushrooms
- 2 cans jackfruit by native forest
- 2 onions, diced
- 6 cloves garlic
- 4 tbsp tomato paste
- 1 cup crushed tomatoes
- 4 tbsp maple syrup
- 3 tbsp coconut aminos
- 1 tsp garlic powder
- 1 tsp onion powder
- 1/2 tsp smoked paprika
- 1 dash cayenne
Saute onions in a little water. Add garlic and saute until soft. Then add crushed tomatoes, tomato paste, all the spice powders, jackfruit and mushrooms. The veggies will release some more water. Monitor the water for cooking and don’t let the pan get too dry, or else you will burn your food. Cook until the mushrooms are soft and aromatic. Once the mushrooms are soft and reduced, add in the maple syrup and the coconut aminos. If you choose, at this time you can add in more smoked paprika to top the dish off and a little bit more cayenne to your taste.
Your taco filling is now ready!

Vegan Three Bean Chili
I always load our tacos up with our Vegan Three Bean Chili. Click on the link to find the recipe. If you don’t have time to make the chili you can always just use the Jackfruit Mushroom Taco Meat recipe and enjoy a lighter taco experience.
Another amazing topping for the tacos is Tomato Salsa, which you can make as spicy or mild as you like. We like ours super spicy and don’t hold back on the all hot peppers.
Garnish with sliced avocados, chopped onions, and chopped cilantro.
