I used to make this dish with beef, but substituting with portobella mushrooms turned it into my family's vegetarian favorite. It's quick, nutritious, low fat and tasty. —Greg Fontenot, The Woodlands, Texas

Ingredients

  • 4 large portobello mushrooms (about 3/4 pound)
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 medium sweet red pepper, cut into strips
  • 1 medium onion, halved and thinly sliced
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons chili powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
  • 1 teaspoon grated lime peel
  • 2 tablespoons lime juice
  • 8 corn tortillas (6 inches), warmed
  • 1 cup shredded pepper jack cheese

Directions

Remove stems from mushrooms; if desired, remove gills using a spoon. Cut mushrooms into 1/2-in. slices.
In a large skillet, heat oil over medium-high heat; saute mushrooms, red pepper and onion until mushrooms are tender, 5-7 minutes. Stir in garlic, seasonings, lime peel and lime juice; cook and stir 1 minute. Serve in tortillas; top with cheese. Yield: 4 servings.
Health Tip: These same tacos made with lean ground beef adds almost 4g saturated fat per serving. That’s a good reason for a meatless Taco Tuesday!

"Great vegetarian weeknight dinner! I had some leftover mushrooms and had them with a baked potato...that was great too."
