These loaded mushroom tacos are perfect for your summer get togethers and parties. Nachos really are such a great interactive sharing dish that pleases many. It’s hard not to with all the deliciousness and contrasts of Mexican flavours. In this rendition there are flavour packed, spicy hints coming from the mushrooms, sweetness and tang from the tomato salsa, creminess from the avocado and lots of savoury deliciousness from the cashew cheese sauce. Maybe these are not the most traditional nachos but they are yummy and utilises many of the components I have come to love as a vegan Swede exploring Mexican flavours in my Malmö kitchen far away from Mexico itself.

A huge inspiration for my new spark to cook and eat Mexican food comes from reading and cooking from fabulous cookbook Provechy by Edgar Castrejon. I cooked up his recipes in a recent video – you can check it out here, and I just loved everything I made. The mushrooms in this recipe is inspired by his adobo mushroom tacos which he kindly allowed me to share the recipe for here. Make them and thank me later, haha. After you make these nachos though, double haha! Or should I say jejeje!?
