  • 4 ears corn on the cob⁣
  • Olive oil⁣
  • 3 Tbsp unsalted butter⁣
  • 1 shallot⁣
  • 3 garlic cloves⁣
  • 8 oz mushrooms sliced ⁣
  • 3.5 oz shiitake mushrooms stems removed and sliced⁣
  • 1 tsp kosher salt⁣
  • 1/2 tsp black pepper ⁣
  • 1 tsp cumin⁣
  • 2 tsp smoked paprika ⁣
  • 2 oz cream cheese ⁣

To Serve:⁣

  • 2 avocados sliced or cubed⁣
  • Jalapeños sliced and seeds removed ⁣
  • Fresh cilantro⁣
  • Cotija cheese crumbled ⁣
  • 8 corn tortillas ⁣

  • Drizzle corn with olive oil and sprinkle with salt. Massage into corn until covered. ⁣
  • Heat a grill over medium heat. Cook corn for 15 minutes, turning once midway through.⁣
  • While corn is cooking, prepare mushrooms. Heat a large skillet over medium high heat. Add butter. Once almost melted, add shallot and garlic. Sauté 3-4 minutes. Add mushrooms and combine with butter mixture. Turn heat down to medium. Add salt, pepper, paprika and cumin. Mix well and cook until softened, roughly 8-10 minutes.

  • Remove corn from grill and let cool slightly. Shave kernels off of cob into a medium bowl. Add corn to mushroom mixture and combine. Return to stove over low heat. Add cream cheese and lime juice. Cook 3-5 more minutes or until cream cheese is melted. Taste and adjust seasoning as needed. ⁣
  • Lightly toast tortillas in a dry, nonstick skillet or over open flame for 30 seconds on each side, using tongs to flip.⁣
  • Set up assembly line with tortillas, mushroom/corn mixture and toppings. Assemble tacos as desired. Serve with rice and beans.⁣
