Easy Meat and Mushroom Tacos

Tacos are a big favorite at my house, so I love it when I can cut the meat with a can of beans and make it last longer. But what’s better (I’ve learned) is adding in some mushrooms in addition to the beans to stretch things even further. I’d never done that before trying it in a recipe from Prep Dish (see below). And at first my younger daughter said, “Mushrooms in our tacos? Why’d you do that?” But then guess what – she soon forgot and cleaned her entire plate. I made a few modifications (as I always tend to do!) to the original recipe and am sharing it below.

Funny enough, I recently asked some friends if they’d help me test some meal plans, and when several of them said, “Having someone else figure out a dinner plan and grocery list for me is so awesome!” I realized not everyone knows that meal planning services exist to do exactly that for you. So today I’m excited to tell you about one of our favorites – Prep Dish. Not only do they send you an organized shopping list with recipe instructions, but they tell you what items to prep in advance to make weeknight meals a breeze.

    SO GOOD! I had Cannellini Beans instead of pinto and honestly I think it made it better because it didn’t overpower the other flavors. And leftovers!
