Spicy Portobello mushroom tacos

I'm normally a meat in my tacos kind of girl. However, after I made this recipe I realized that meat doesn't always have to be the star of the show. These tacos are packed full of sautéed mushrooms, onions and peppers. I kept the seasoning on the vegetables minimal because there is a lot of flavor from the avocado sauce and salsa.

Yields 6


  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 pounds sliced portobello mushrooms
