Jackfruit Nachos

This is a super easy and quick lunch or dinner and is oh so good! I discovered jackfruit a while back and have previously used it for barbecue jackfruit and recently started playing around with using it for tacos. The first time I used a Tex-Mex blend which was good but a little spicy. This time I used smoked jackfruit which my family truly enjoyed . I may try adding diced tomatoes next time and my own spices… still playing around with the mix.
