Place a large pan over a medium - high heat and add in the cacao butter.

Once the cacao butter has melted and is starting to sizzle, add the jackfruit and cook for a couple of minutes.

Stir in the garlic powder, onion granules, chipotle paste, cumin and smoked paprika. Stir together well, making sure all of the jackfruit is covered in the spices. Cook for a further couple of minutes, until nice and fragrant.

Next, add in the cacao powder, tomato puree, liquid smoke, and maple syrup, followed by the vegetable stock.

Bring to the boil, then reduce to simmer on a low heat for 25 - 30 minutes until the jackfruit is soft and tender.

Pull apart the jackfruit with a fork - so that it starts to resemble ‘pulled pork’.

Fill the tortillas with the chocolate chipotle jackfruit and top with toppings of your choice and serve.
