Chipotle Mushroom Walnut Tacos

This easy vegetarian mushroom walnut taco recipe is one of my go-to favorites to cook when I'm working as a private chef in Vermont.

Made with chopped mushrooms, walnuts, and a spicy chipotle seasoning, it's super savory and satisfying.

It's a great easy meatless dinner recipe that can be served on its own or along with a meat or seafood taco recipe when entertaining guests.

Chipotle Mushroom Walnut Tacos
Serves 4

3 pints cremini button mushrooms (aka “baby bello”)
3 tablespoons butter (use olive oil to make the recipe vegan)
1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
1 small yellow onion, diced
2 cups walnuts, pistachios, or other nuts
1 chipotle pepper in adobo sauce, minced
1 tablespoon adobo sauce (from the chipotle can)
1/2 teaspoon liquid smoke (optional)
1 28oz can crushed tomatoes
1 tablespoon smoked Spanish paprika

To assemble:
Soft corn tortillas
Greek-style yogurt
Fresh scallions, minced
Queso blanco

Chop the mushrooms roughly into small pieces (can also chop in the food processor). Set aside.

Heat the butter and olive oil in a medium skillet over medium heat. Add the diced onions and sauté until soft, about 2-3 minutes. Add the pistachios, mushrooms, and chipotle pepper and let cook for 3-5 minutes or until the mushrooms cook down and are tender. Add the adobo sauce,  liquid smoke, tomatoes, and Spanish paprika. (If necessary, add a bit more olive oil or water to create a sauce.) Let cook down slightly. Season to taste with Kosher salt and black pepper.

To assemble, heat the warm tortillas on a skillet. Top with yogurt and the mushroom filling. Sprinkle on scallions and crumbled queso blanco. Serve immediately.
