Drunken Asparagus & Oyster Mushroom Tacos

It’s one of those Mondays where a girl needs a little help from a bottle of tequila… to cook dinner. Tequila really brings the flavor out of these meaty mushrooms, and you won’t be sorry you added it.

  • 1/2 tomato
  • 8 tortillas

Broil the poblano pepper for 10 minutes and place it in a container to steam for 20 minutes or until cool. Remove skin and seeds and dice.
