Chanterelle Tacos

Meaty chanterelles take center stage in these quick vegetarian tacos. The serrano chile packs a punch; use a milder pepper, like jalapeno, for less heat.

  • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 1/2 white onion, finely chopped
  • 1 small serrano chile, finely chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, finely chopped
  • Fine-grain sea salt
  • 12 ounces chanterelles or mixed wild mushrooms, thinly sliced
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons dried Mexican oregano
  • 8 corn tortillas
  • 1/2 cup freshly grated Parmesan


  1. Heat oil and butter in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Saute onion, chile, garlic, and 1/4 teaspoon salt until onions are translucent, 2 to 4 minutes. Add mushrooms and cook, stirring, over high heat, until mushrooms turn deep golden brown and release their liquid, 4 to 6 minutes. Remove from heat and sprinkle with oregano. Adjust salt if necessary.

  2. Toast tortillas over the flame of a gas burner, turning with tongs, until crisp and blackened in spots. (You can also char them in the broiler.) Divide mushroom mixture among tortillas and sprinkle with Parmesan.
