Portobello and Poblano Tacos with Avocado Herb Sal...

Portobello and Poblano Tacos need to make an appearance at your next party. No one will even miss the meat in these delicious vegetarian tacos.
Even though today I am a full fledged carnivore, for about 10 years I was a vegetarian. Unfortunately during that time I also didn’t cook very much, so let’s just suffice to say there were way to many carbs, cheese, and some very tight jeans. Looking back, if I had cooked at home more back then, I may still be a vegetarian today especially with dishes like these simple portobello mushroom and poblano tacos. The portobellos make a perfect substitution for meat with their meaty texture and the poblanos add just enough spice without being overwhelming.
On top of all that, everything is finished with the most delicious avocado herb salsa that’s made in the blender in about 2 minutes. It starts with creamy avocado plus a good helping of cilantro, fresh basil, lime juice, and salt. That’s it but I promise you will want to eat it on everything. You could add a jalapeno as well if you wanted some extra spice since the poblanos can be mild
Now depending on your tastes, you can mix up these Portobello and Poblano Tacos in all kinds of ways
If you love spice, I recommend adding a jalapeno to either the avocado herb salsa or to the onions and poblanos. Personally I find poblano peppers mild so I love having the extra spice.
Like more veggies? You can add all kinds of veggies to this taco filling to mix up the flavors. My favorites are diced zucchini and corn alongside the mushrooms. The corn adds some sweetness and crunch which I love
Want more fiber? Add some black beans to the mix for a more substantial and filling taco. You could also toss in some quinoa or brown rice,
Add cheese! If you aren’t looking for a vegan taco, I recommend topping these with some Mexican queso fresco if you can find it. Mozzarella, goat cheese, and feta are all pretty delicious too.
If you want some crunch? Consider making some quick pickled red onions to add on top. Just soak sliced red onion in lime juice for at least one hour before serving.
