Mushroom and Chile Tacos

These flavorful vegetarian tacos are filled with savory mushrooms, spicy poblano peppers, and sweet onions. A variety of garnishes make this a fun hands-on meal.

What to buy: Queso fresco is a mild white cheese that doesn’t melt when heated. It can be found in the refrigerated cheese case of most grocery stores or at specialty cheese shops or Latin markets.

Game plan: You’ll need to make the Pickled Jalapeños or Pickled Red Onions before you begin, if using.
