  1. Step 1

    Gather the ingredients.
  2. Step 2

    Combine all of the avocado crema by blending avocado, lime juice, and seasonings in a blender or food processor. If too thick to blend smoothly, add water one tablespoon at a time. Set aside.
  3. Step 3

    Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat.
  4. Step 4

    Once the oil is hot and shimmering, add the onion and sauté, stirring occasionally, for 5 minutes or until the onions are translucent.
  5. Step 5

    Stir in the chili powder, cumin, chipotle, and oregano to the skillet. Sauté until fragrant, about 1 minute more.
  6. Step 6

    Add the jackfruit, stirring to combine with the seasoned onions.
  7. Step 7

    Add vegetable broth and salt, stirring to combine. Continue to cook over medium-high heat for 5 more minutes, stirring frequently, until the broth is mostly evaporated and the jackfruit is slightly thickened in the sauce.
  8. Step 8

    Assemble the tacos by spooning on the cooked beans, jackfruit, avocado crema, pico de gallo, and a pinch of scallions.
