My Jackfruit Chili with Beefless Crumbles is perfect for the season

I love chili and crave its deliciousness year-round. I normally go for a traditional red, thick and hearty sauce with kidney beans. Chili is so tasty and can easily be made meatless or with a meat substitute.

My friend recently texted me asking about a white chicken chili recipe from a few years ago which ignited my taste buds for the savory dish. I just needed to make it vegan. The obvious choice would be to use a vegan grilled chicken, but I am not a fan of ANY brand I’ve ever tried so I decided to use jackfruit.

Jackfruit has become a popular and healthy meatless option that has a meat-like texture. What’s more, is jackfruit is low in sodium and calories making it the perfect choice. I also added meatless crumbles for some additional texture and heartiness. I hope you enjoy!
