For assembly:

  1. For salsa verde: Preheat oven to broil and line a rimmed baking sheet with aluminum foil.
    Place tomatillos, jalapenos, onion and garlic on prepared baking sheet. Drizzle with 1
    tablespoon oil and toss to coat. Broil, tossing vegetables occasionally, until dark
    golden-brown and tender, about 10 to 14 minutes.
  2. Transfer vegetables, cilantro and lime juice to blender and puree until smooth, scraping
    down the sides as needed, about 1 minute. Season with salt and pepper, to taste.
  3. Heat remaining oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add jackfruit and cook, stirring
    occasionally until fully heated through, about 5 to 6 minutes. Stir in salsa verde until
    combined. Remove from heat.
  4. For assembly: Combine sour cream, cumin and lime juice in a small bowl. Season with
    salt, to taste. Place tortilla chips on a rimmed baking sheet. Top with cheese, and broil
    until melted, about 3 to 5 minutes. Top with jackfruit mixture, avocados, olives, radishes
    and cilantro. Dollop with sour cream mixture and serve.
