Freaky Fiesta!

Jackfruit Chili

3 ½ Pounds Fresh Jackfruit (Get about 8 cups of pods)

1 Medium Sweet Onion Diced

2 Jalapenos Diced (Seeds removed if you want it less spicy)

1 Tablespoon Minced Garlic

1 Medium Orange Sweet Pepper, Seeded and Diced

1 Cup Frozen Corn

1 Can Navy Beans Drained

1 Can Great Northern Beans Drained

2 Cups Vegetable Broth

1 Tablespoon Chili Powder

1 Tablespoon Cumin

1 Tablespoon Oregano

1 Teaspoon Coriander

1 Teaspoon Garlic Powder

1 Teaspoon Black Pepper

1 Tablespoon Salt

½ Cup Olive Oil

  1. Take pods out of the jackfruit, remove seeds from the pods and their outer membrane. Discard.
  2. Cut Jackfruit into 2-inch chunks.
  3. Heat Dutch oven over medium heat, add olive oil, jackfruit, onion, jalapeno peppers, poblano pepper, sweet pepper and garlic to the pan. Sauté for about 10 minutes until everything softens.
  4. Add all beans and seasonings to the mixture.
  5. Add vegetable broth and bring the chili up to a simmer.
  6. Lastly add corn and let simmer for 20 minutes.
  7. Serve with sour cream, cilantro, lime and avocado.


Side Comments:

  • Spray knife with pan spray before cutting the jackfruit and use gloves, jackfruit is pretty sticky.
  • Jackfruit is sweet and the heat from this chili helps offset that, similar to a cactus chili in sweetness.
  • Jackfruit is a great alternative to shredded pork or shredded chicken; you can get it fresh or in a can.
