Old El Paso


  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 1 medium onion, thinly sliced
  • 1 package (8 oz) sliced fresh mushrooms (about 3 cups)
  • 1 package (1 oz) Old El Paso™ taco seasoning mix
  • 12 soft white or yellow corn tortillas (6 inch)
  • 1/2 cup chopped fresh cilantro
  • 1/2 cup crumbled queso fresco cheese


  • 1
    In large skillet, melt butter over medium heat. Cook onion in butter about 15 minutes, stirring occasionally, until golden. Add mushrooms and taco seasoning mix. Cook 3 to 5 minutes longer, stirring occasionally, until onion and mushrooms are soft. Remove from heat; cover to keep warm.
  • 2
    Wrap tortillas in microwavable paper towel. Microwave on High about 20 seconds or until warm. For each taco, stack 2 tortillas; spoon mushroom-onion mixture evenly over tortillas. Sprinkle with cilantro and cheese.

  • For extra heat, add a few dashes of red pepper sauce to the mushroom-onion mixture.
  • Can’t find queso fresco? Oaxaca cheese and farmer cheese are excellent alternatives.
