Excellent. I thought you were going to shred/pul the jackfruit for some reason - but that is probably because most vegan jackfruit recipes do that.

2 habanero peppers
:heat:

Wowsers...this is really a lot of heat for a relatively small amount of chili. But, I do like how all the flavors come together. Is the jackfruit in chunks, or is it already shredded (as @morning glory asked)? I've had it before, and I do like the "meaty" character. I'm still trying to decide whether or not to buy a whole one (they can be as much as 55 kg (120 lb), which would make a lot of chili!)

I think the tins are probably as good - given that the flavour of jackfruit itself is fairly neutral. But I've never tried fresh jackfruit.

I actually had both varieties in the refrigerator - shredded and cubed. There has been a long standing debate in the chili world on whether you should have large chunks of meat or ground meat. I don't have much of a preference. On the other hand, I do have a recipe in mind for the shredded jackfruit, so I chose the chunk style jackfruit in the chili.

My problem was that I didn't love the texture of it. Maybe if I cooked it in a chili I would think differently about it. I tried emulating pulled pork with it.
I understand you need to let it 'catch' a bit to make it pork-like. I find vegan food does require a little less spice than meat. dishes.

Looks great. I bought a can yesterday to experiment with again.

I have a can too in the store cupboard. I made the best vegan burger I ever made using tinned jackfruit. Keep meaning to post the recipe....

These are my notes:
