Walnut Mexican Street Corn Tacos

Prep Time: 10 minsCook Time: 8 minsServings: 6
Expect a touch of smoky flavor in these vegetarian tacos, courtesy of the fire roasted corn and chipotle adobo sauce. That boldness in flavor is contrasted with creamy cotija cheese and sour cream, and brightness from fresh lime and cilantro. The “meat” is made with a hearty combination of walnuts and chopped mushrooms. For a twist on the recipe, serve the taco filling over a rice base instead of in tortillas.


  1. Stir together chipotle adobo sauce and crema in a small bowl. Refrigerate until serving.
  2. Combine walnuts, mushrooms, cumin, chili powder, garlic, soy sauce and lime juice in a food processor. Pulse to break up walnuts and mushrooms into small crumbles.
  3. Heat olive oil over medium-low heat in a skillet. Add walnut mixture and cook, stirring occasionally for 7-8 minutes, until mushrooms are tender.
  4. Spoon walnut taco meat over tortillas topped with roasted corn, cotija, chipotle crema, cilantro, and lime wedges
