Chili con Jackfruit

vegan alternative: Chili Con Jackfruit

Where the classic chili con carne originated is largely unknown. In general, the recipe is not assigned to Mexican cuisine, but to Tex-Mex cuisine . The Chili con Jackfruit, on the other hand, clearly has its origins in Lotao cuisine - and is at least as tasty as the homeless original. Here you will find out how you can prepare the bombastic Lotao Tex-Mex chili-con jackfruit in just a few steps !
