Ingredients Needed

Ingredients on a counter in small bowls and dishes.

Portobello Mushrooms. Large fresh portobello mushrooms are the base of this recipe. You can also used baby bellas if you need.

Seasonings. Onion, Steak Seasoning Blend, Smoked Paprika. Use any steak seasoning blend of choice. Chipotle seasoning.

Chipotle In Adobo. This is what gives these tacos a little spice and loads of flavor just like my Chipotle Chicken Tacos.

Pineapple Juice. This is for the marinade and to caramelize the exterior of the mushrooms giving them a beautiful grilled look. I use canned pineapple for the pico de gallo and then use the juice leftover from that.

Cabbage. This is for the quick chipotle slaw for the tacos.

Pineapple Pico De Gallo. This is the recipe for it. If you want you can also just use store bought pico de gallo.

All other ingredients and measurements are listed in the recipe card below.

Portobello Mushrooms. Use slice Baby Bella Mushrooms instead if needed.

Pineapple Pico De Gallo. Use my Mango Pico De Gallo or store bought traditional pico de gallo in place.

Mayonnaise. Use plain greek yogurt or sour cream in place of the mayo if needed.
