Treat your ingredients with care...

  • Mushrooms — Make sure to clean the mushrooms thoroughly before slicing. If using larger mushrooms, you can chop them into bite-sized pieces for easier consumption.

Tips & Tricks

  • For an extra kick of heat, add a pinch of cayenne pepper to the spice mixture.
  • Customize your tacos by adding your favorite toppings such as diced tomatoes, sliced jalapeños, or a drizzle of hot sauce.
  • If you prefer a creamier texture, you can add a spoonful of sour cream or vegan mayo to the avocado sauce.
