Mexican Mushroom Beef Tacos for Fast & Easy Allergy-Friendly Dinners


I love Mexican nights – from both a cooking and eating perspective. They’re quick to throw together, and have great build-your-own potential. These dairy-free, gluten-free mushroom beef tacos, for example, are easy to prep, fast to cook, and everyone can top them however they wish. You can even use the mushroom-beef blend to build burritos or bowls instead of tacos.

Mushrooms cook seamlessly into beef dishes, so even picky eaters won’t notice them. But they add to the rich flavor of the dish while providing micronutrients like selenium, B vitamins, and vitamin D. If you are allergic to beef, you can substitute ground turkey. The tacos will still be delicious! And if you’re vegan, try this homemade vegan ground beef instead.

These Mexican mushroom beef tacos are great for using pantry ingredients, including canned foods. But you can use fresh corn off the cob, if you have it on hand. You can even dice and crush your own tomatoes.
