  1. In a large frying pan heat 2 tbsp of Canola oil over medium to high heat.
  2. When hot, add in the onions and garlic and sauté for about 4-5 minutes or until the onions have become translucent and starting to brown.
  3. Add the chopped jackfruit, water, lime juice and seasonings to the pot and cover.
  4. Reduce heat and let it simmer until the jackfruit softens a bit, and about 1/2 of the liquid is absorbed. Approx. 5 minutes.
  5. Using a potato masher, or two forks smash all the jackfruit up to get that shredded texture. Remove from heat once shredded.
  6. In a small bowl, add sour cream, mint leaves, fresh chives.  Mix until the sauce is smooth. Set aside until ready for serving.
  7. Pre-heat the oven to 400°. Place the tortillas on a plate and cover them with paper towel.
  8. Place in Microwave and heat for approximately 30-45 seconds or until warm and pliable.
  9. Top each tortilla with 2 tablespoons of the jackfruit mixture, spreading it to an inch from the edges.
  10. Roll up the tortillas and place them on a foil-lined baking sheet with the seam sides down. Brush the taquitos lightly with the remaining Canola Oil, then bake them until the jackfruit filling is heated through and the tortillas are lightly browned, about 8 to 12 minutes. Serve hot with crema sauce to dip in! Enjoy!
