Step 5

Then, remove the jackfruit from the broth and pull it into shreds using two forks. Don't discard the broth as you'll need it for the tortillas.

Step 6

Pour the broth into a shallow bowl, dip in one tortilla, and let soak in the liquids. Then remove it, shaking off excess water.

Step 7

Place the tortilla into a greased heated skillet and cover one half with jackfruit, a few spoonfuls of adobo broth, finely chopped shallots and cilantro.

Step 8

Fold the tortilla over the fillings and cook it for 1-2 minutes on each side. Enjoy the birria tacos with extra cilantro, shallots, and a cup of adobo broth on the side for dipping.
