Servings 4


  • 10 oz black pear mushrooms or mushrooms of choice
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil extra virgin
  • 1 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1 teaspoon smoked paprika
  • 1/2 teaspoon cumin
  • 1 clove garlic minced
  • 1/4 teaspoon fresh chili pepper minced
  • Salt and black pepper to taste


  • Chop mushrooms into bite size pieces. Black pearl mushrooms and other oyster mushrooms shred nicely so you can alternatively scrape the raw stems with a fork to shred them.
  • Warm the oil in a skillet over medium high. Add the mushrooms and sautee for 10 minutes. Add the remaining ingredients and cook another 3 or 4 minutes.
  • Serve in a warmed tortilla and top with your favorite taco toppings. I like avocado and spicy radish slaw!
