Let your party guests devour a huge plate of loaded chili lime jackfruit nachos, a vegetarian alternative with bright and bold flavors.


  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 1011 oz prepared jackfruit (Chili Lime, or your favorite style)
  • 1/2 bag (6.5 ounces) tortilla chips
  • 1 15-ounce can drained black beans
  • 1 6-ounce can drained black olives, sliced
  • 1 cup corn kernels
  • 2 cups shredded cheese (Mexican blend or cheddar cheese are fine)
  • 1 jalapeno, sliced
  • 1 avocado, cubed
  • 1 cup salsa or pico de gallo
  • 1 small bunch fresh cilantro, chopped
  • 2 limes, sliced into wedges


  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F.
  2. Heat the vegetable oil in a small skillet over medium heat. Add the jackfruit, and stir until softened and warmed, breaking up larger pieces, for about 5 minutes. Set aside.
  3. Spread the tortilla chips on the bottom of a large cast iron skillet. Scatter the jackfruit over the nachos. Spread the beans, black olives, and corn kernels on top of the nachos. Sprinkle the cheese evenly over the toppings.
  4. Place in the oven and bake for about 10 minutes, until the cheese is completely melted and starting to bubble. Remove from the heat.
  5. Add the other toppings: jalapeno, avocado, salsa, and chopped cilantro. Serve immediately with lime wedges.
