“Pulled” BBQ Jackfruit & Caramelized Pineapple Taquitos??? I posted a similar recipe last week, but I wasn’t totally happy with it- so I took it down. I tweaked it & now it’s even better ??. Sometimes I forget that I can take my time with things. I get too caught up in the “ I need to produce content” mode which is just wrong for me & not the point of my page. I just want you to enjoy my pics ,my recipes & if I just happen to inspire you to eat more plants & not harm animals – well then RIGHT ON ✌??Okay, now on to the recipe:
