Description

This mushroom tacos recipe is quick to make and bursting with savory flavor, starring meaty portobellos and creamy refried beans!


Ingredients

Scale
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil, divided
  • 4 large portobello mushrooms*, sliced 1/4-inch thick
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1/4 teaspoon cumin seed
  • 1/2 teaspoon each ground cumin and smoked paprika
  • Scant 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • Fresh ground black pepper
  • 1/2 tablespoon lime juice (1/4 lime)
  • 15-ounce can refried beans
  • 1/4 medium red cabbage
  • 1 ripe avocado
  • For serving: pico de gallo (required), queso fresco or feta cheese crumbles (optional)
  • 8 tortillas

Instructions

  1. Sauté the mushrooms: Slice the mushrooms into 1/4-inch slices. Mince the garlic. In a large skillet, heat 2 tablespoons olive oil over medium high heat. Add the mushrooms and cook 5 to 6 minutes, stirring occasionally, until softened. Lower the heat to medium and stir in the additional 1 tablespoon olive oil, garlic, cumin seed, cumin, smoked paprika, kosher salt and black pepper. Cook 1 to 2 minutes until fragrant, then turn off the heat and stir in the lime juice.
  2. Heat the beans: Heat the refried beans in a small saucepan until warm. Taste and add a few pinches of kosher salt if necessary.
  3. Make the quick slaw: Shred the red cabbage. Place it in a bowl and add the juice of 1 lime quarter and 2 pinches of kosher salt. Dice the avocado, if using.
  4. Warm the tortillas: Warm and char the tortillas by placing them on an open gas flame on medium for a few seconds per side, flipping with tongs, until they are slightly blackened and warm. (See How to Warm Tortillas.)
  5. Assemble the tacos: Add a generous spoonful of refried beans, a small handful of mushrooms*, slaw, avocado, pico de gallo, and cheese crumbles, if using.

Notes

*The serving size makes 8 modest tacos. If serving very hungry eaters, you may want to make 1.5 times the mushrooms and double the refried beans, or add some hearty side dishes.
