Unripe (green) jackfruit makes an excellent meat substitute for vegan pulled or shredded pork, but isn't often used to replace steak. We hope to change that! Snack Jack makes an incredible sliced steak substitute. Its a meaty texture and bold flavor is perfect for making vegan "steak" tacos, fajitas, or tostadas.
We're really excited about this tostada recipe because it's super fast and easy to prepare.
We used 1 small bag of Sweet Chili Snack Jack, which was enough to make two very filling tostadas. We recommend using a Medium bag and quadrupling the recipe to feed 2 (4 tostadas total).
Makes 1 portion (2 tostadas)
2/3 cup refried beans
1 tablespoon olive oil (or other oil)
1/4 onion, sliced thin
1/4 Anaheim or green bell pepper, sliced
6 grape tomatoes, diced
1 Small Bag Sweet Chili Snack Jack
1/4 cup water
pinch chili powder
Place tostadas on a parchment paper-lined baking sheet. Top each tostada with 1/3 cup of the refried beans and one slice of Daiya Provolone Style Slices. Set aside. Preheat oven to 350*F.
Heat a small cast iron skillet to medium-high heat. Add oil, onions, and peppers. Cook until onions are translucent and beginning to brown.
Add tomatoes, Sweet Chili Snack Jack, spices, and water. Cook until the water is absorbed.
For added flavor, continue cooking until Snack Jack and onions brown or caramelize.
Spoon filling over the Daiya Provolone Style Slices, refried beans, and tostada.
Bake at 350*F until cheese melts.
Top with chopped cilantro. Serve.
