Jackfruit Carnitas - Clean Green Simple Version
For the spice blend (this is relatively flexible - if you don't have a
couple of the spices on hand just work with what you've got):

2 tsp ground cumin
2 tsp chili powder
pinch cayenne pepper
1/4 tsp paprika
1/2 tsp oregano
1/4 tsp garlic powder
1/4 tsp pepper
1/2 tsp salt
pinch cinnamon
1 tsp lime juice

For the carnitas:

1 Tbsp coconut oil
1 small onion, diced
2 clove garlic, crushed
Homemade spice blend (see above)
1 20 oz can of Jackfruit in brine, drained
1 Tbsp maple syrup

Place a pan on medium heat. Add oil, onion, garlic, and spice blend. Stir
until onions are clear and coated with spices. Add jackfruit and maple
syrup and stir occasionally to break up the jackfruit. It will be ready
when the liquid is dissolved and the jackfruit darkens and starts to look
like shredded meat.
