Who says tacos are soleLy for Tuesday!?

For our first February segment of Meatless Monday we are revising a classic favorite – tacos. To make them even more of a party favorite, we’ve downsized our tacos into minis that can be shared with everyone. Making mini tortilla shells is simple! All you need to do is use a glass to outline a smaller circle shape in your favorite tortillas. Then, take a cupcake tin and flip it over. Lay your mini tacos in between the cupcake grooves so when they crisp they can lay flat. Bake at 350 degrees F for 10 minutes and you will be good to go!

Our star ingredient for these mini tacos is jackfruit. Jackfruit is rich in fiber and is a good source of vitamins and minerals. It is the perfect alternative to meat-based ingredients to almost any meal – from sandwiches to simple rice bowls. It’s versatility makes jackfruit a great ingredient for meat and veggie lovers alike!


1 package Upton Natural’s Jackfruit, any flavor

3 regular sized tortillas

Squeeze of lime juice

1 small handful of broccoli slaw

Radish sprouts for garnish



  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Cut out 8 small circles from your tortillas – you can use any drinking glass and just trace a circle with a knife. Flip a cupcake tin upside down and place your mini tortillas in the crevices of the tin so once the mini tortillas crisp, you will be able to stand them up.
  2. Place tortilla shells in the oven and bake for 10 minutes.
  3. While tortillas are crisping, heat jackfruit according to package details.
  4. After tortillas are done, you’re ready to plate:
    1. Add a little amount of broccoli slaw in your shell. Squeeze a little lime juice if you wish!
    2. Next, add the heated jackfruit.
    3. Top with sprouts for garnish and ENJOY!
