Beef Mushroom Avocado Tacos Recipe

A filled taco with creamy avocados, cooked mushrooms and beef to create the perfect dinner. A unique version of the standard taco that you are sure to find delightful!

Excluding last year (due to my being on bedrest), my husband and I have thrown a Cinco de Mayo party at our house every spring. We plan to resume our tradition this year. Want to come over for a CdM fiesta?

Cinco de Mayo happens during the most perfect time of the year, in my opinion. Spring has officially sprung by then (most years) here in Minnesota, and everyone is in the mood for margaritas, Mexican food and mingling. Is there anything better than those three things put together? Add to it JUST SURVIVED TERRIBLE, HIDEOUS WINTER and it's a glorious scenario!

To get into the Mexican-springtime-celebrating spirit, I donned my sombrero and put together this delicious taco recipe that I adapted from a friend's recipe. It's a unique version of the standard taco and my husband and I found it to be delightful. Sadly, we did not simultaneously consume margaritas. What were we thinking?

What kind of beef works best for tacos?

The good news is that there is no wrong answer! Carne Asada is traditionally a good meat to throw on the grill because it’s thin cut and slices up perfectly for tacos. In this recipe, and for budget purposes, ground hamburger works good too.

Can you make your own taco seasoning?

Taco seasoning is very affordable at the grocery store. But it’s so easy and even healthier to make your own - I have an easy recipe to make your own and store some for later. Try this recipe here.

Heat 2 tablespoons of olive oil in a skillet over medium heat.

Add:

1 pound ground beef (we used venison)

1/2 of an onion, chopped (reserve the other 1/2 for later)

3 jalapeno peppers, minced (deseed and/or use fewer peppers for a less spicy result)

Salt and pepper, to taste

Cook over medium heat until the meat is browned and the onion is softened, about 10 minutes.

Transfer the mixture to a bowl, reserving the skillet.

In a separate bowl, combine:

Remaining 1/2 onion, chopped

2 avocados, cubed

1/4 cup fresh lime juice

Salt and pepper, to taste

Taste. Mmmmm.

In the reserved skillet, heat 1 tablespoon of olive oil over medium heat.

Add:

8 oz. fresh mushrooms, sliced

2 cloves garlic, minced

Salt and pepper, to taste

Cook until lightly browned, about 8 minutes.

Stir into the beef mixture and cover to keep warm.

Wipe out the skillet. Over medium heat, toast 8 tortillas, one at a time, for 1 minute on each side.

Stuff the tortillas with equal amounts of the beef-avocado-mushroom mixture. Serve immediately to hungry person(s)!
