Here are some tacos! Conor and I have made these babies 3 or 4 times now they're SO good. Perfect combo of crunchy and buttery. Smoky, spicy and also incredibly easy! Also they are fairly healthy to help align with any new goals or, perhaps resolutions anyone may currently have ;) Recipe adapted from here!
chipotle kale + mushroom tacos
(serves 4 as an side or 2 with some leftovers)
2 or 3 leaves of curly green kale tough steam removed and sliced into ribbons
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 teaspoon of adobo sauce from a can of chipotle peppers (start with less and taste as you go! this is some heat!)
scant 1/4 teaspoon chipotle chili powder
1 tablespoon of butter
12oz. container of baby bella mushrooms; sliced
1 garlic clove, minced
1/2 teaspoon cumin
1/4 teaspoon of both salt + pepper
2 tablespoons fresh chopped cilantro
halved cherry tomatoes
sliced red onion
more chopped cilantro
red onion slices
fresh goat cheese
corn or flour tortillas (preferably warmed!)
for the kale:
Place the sliced leaves in a large bowl. Add in the olive oil, adobo sauce and chili powder. Using your hands evenly mix and massage the ingredients into the kale making sure it is evenly coated. Set aside. Be sure to wash your hands after this step!
for the mushrooms:
In a large skillet over medium heat add a splash of olive oil and the butter and let melt. Add in mushrooms and let cook till they are soft, about 8 minutes. Stir in garlic, cumin, salt, pepper and cilantro. Turn off the heat.
Assemble the tacos! Start with some kale, a scoop of the mushrooms and then your desired toppings. Enjoy!!
