- Additionally, cut the peppers to the same thickness.
- Mix the oil, minced garlic, and taco seasoning in a small bowl.
- Pour it over the vegetables.
- Gently shake the bowl to cover the mushrooms and peppers with the seasonings.
- Place the mushrooms and peppers on the baking sheet and bake for twenty to twenty-five minutes, rotating the pan halfway through the cooking time.
- Meanwhile, make the taco sauce. Whisk together the sour cream, milk, and taco seasoning.

Recipe Variations and Substitutions
- Instead of goat cheese, you can use crumbled Cotija cheese.
SERVE: You can keep these out for no longer than two hours before they need to be covered and refrigerated. We recommend storing the filling, toppings, and tortillas separately.
STORE: Store the mushroom fillings, toppings, and tortillas separately in airtight containers in the refrigerator for 2-3 days.
FREEZE: To freeze the mushroom filling, place it in a freezer-safe container for 2-3 months. Please note, upon defrosting, that the mushrooms and bell pepper will not be as firm.
DEFROST: Defrost overnight in the refrigerator.
Yes, they are safe to eat. However, we prefer to remove them for this recipe.
The mushrooms should take about twenty to twenty-five minutes to cook. You will know they are done cooking when they turn dark brown and are firm to the touch. If they are still light in color and squishy, they need more time in the oven to cook.
Get Kids Involved
Ages 2-3: Your child can practice counting skills by making stacks of five tortillas to prepare for warming in the microwave.
Ages 4-5: Ask your child to pre-measure the ingredients for the taco sauce and then whisk the ingredients together. This is a great time to increase their knowledge of measurements.
Ages 6-8: Teach proper knife safety before asking your child to slice the mushrooms and peppers. They can also prepare the seasoning mixture to pour over the sliced vegetables.
Ages 9-11: Supervise them while they prepare the entire recipe. Remember to have them read it twice before beginning the recipe.
Ages 12+: Let them prepare the entire recipe unsupervised while you do the happy dance in the corner!
We grow jalapenos, cilantro, and Roma tomatoes in our home garden. Once the plants start to produce, we love to make these tacos without needing to buy these ingredients from the store. They taste better, and you cannot beat the cost!
