Ingredients

Scale
  • 8 oz (227g) fresh crimini mushrooms
  • 1 small onion, finely chopped
  • 1/2 lb (225g) lean ground beef
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 8 (8 inch) flour tortillas
  • 2 cups cheddar cheese
  • ½ small red onion, sliced
  • 2 small roma tomatoes, thinly sliced

Instructions

  1. Place mushrooms in a food processor fitted with a metal blade. Pulse until finely chopped.
