Heat a pan with oil over medium heat. Add jackfruit and onion and cook until fragrant and slightly softened, about 5 minutes.
Add barbecue sauce, chili powder, garlic powder, salt, pepper, and water to the pan and stir. Cover and simmer on medium-low heat for 10 minutes, stirring occasionally. Add the fresh spinach, stir, and set jackfruit mixture aside.
Over medium heat, heat a medium pan with neutral oil. Add the tortilla, sprinkle on vegan cheese and bbq jackfruit and top with another tortilla.
