      7. Cook on medium heat for 15 minutes, stirring occasionally. Set aside.
      8. Arrange jalapeño halves onto the prepared baking sheet, cut side up, then brush with the remaining 1 tsp of oil and bake for 10 minutes.
      9. Remove from the oven and divide the jackfruit filling among the 20 jalapeño halves. Reserve any remaining jackfruit for sliders or other recipes.
      10. Sprinkle with gluten-free panko bread crumbs then continue to bake for an additional 10 to 15 minutes.
