  • Jackfruit or Soy Curls: Jackfruit can be used for a texture similar to shredded chicken, while soy curls provide a more substantial and chewy texture. Both should be seasoned well before using.
  • Cheese Options: There are various brands of vegan cheese available. Choose one that melts well for the best results.
  • Tortilla Tips: If the tortillas are too stiff to roll, warm them slightly in the microwave or on a skillet to make them more pliable.
