Ok, it’s Monday, but doesn’t mean we can’t grub like it’s Taco Tuesday! Here’s a tasty and easy recipe for all the taco lovers out there! Yummm! It’s perfecto!

8 cups thinly sliced portobello mushrooms

Heat a large skillet coated with cooking spray over medium-high heat. Add onions and sauté 3 to 4 minutes or until tender. Add mushrooms and sauté until their juices have released; about 5 to 7 minutes.
