Have you ever tried Jackfruit? It has been on quite the trend lately for those of us trying to get more fruits and veggies into our diets. It is a fruit, with a consistency that is similar to that of chicken or pork. It has a fairly neutral taste when young, so it takes on the flavor of whatever sauce or seasoning you pair it with. Hence my bbq stuffed sweet potatoes!

I like to buy it in a can or in the refrigerator section in the store. You can buy the whole fruit itself but it is a beast of a fruit and can be a mess to get the actual flesh out. It is so versatile and can be used in place of any chicken or pulled meat dish you love.

For this recipe I simply sautéed onion and chile peppers with spices, added in the jackfruit, vinegar and my favorite bbq sauce from Primal Kitchen Foods allowed it to simmer for a few minutes to heat up. Then added some beans for protein and stuffed the mixture inside of the sweet potato! It’s as easy as that! Dinner on the table in less than 30 minutes!

Quick little tip on something I love to do when I use any already made sauces. I look at the spices and ingredients that are on the label and then I add those to whatever I am sautéing for the mixture. It amplifies the flavors that much more!
