Mexican-Spiced Portobello Tacos with chipotle-lime crema

These Mexican-Spiced Grilled Portobello Tacos with chipotle-lime crema and quick-pickled onions leave nothing to be desired. Portobello mushrooms lose moisture in their growing process, concentrating and enriching their flavors while creating a dense, meaty texture. If you make the pickled onions and crema in advance, all that’s left to do is to grill the portobello mushrooms, and dinner will be on the table stat.

Grill portobellos, covered, until charred, 45 minutes per side; transfer to a cutting board then slice into strips.

Divide portobellos among tortillas; top with guacamole, salsa, pickled onion, crema, and cilantro.
