Tacos are another one of those childhood foods that are always welcome on the dinner table. This is my take on tacos using mushrooms (yay more mushrooms!) as the meat replacement flavored with Mexican style mole sauce. Tacos really lend themselves to adding anything and everything as toppings so chop up some of your favorite veggies and dig in!

Toppings of your choice



1. Add a couple tablespoons of water to a frying pan.

2. Sauté the onions and red pepper in the water until the onions are translucent.
