Portobello Walnut Tacos w/Cilantro Lime Rice

I do have a love affair with tacos. Something about spicy Mexican flavors like cumin, garlic and chili powder-enhanced filling wrapped up in a soft corn tortilla just makes me all warm and fuzzy inside. I am constantly trying to come up with new taco recipes to satisfy my inherent need for them and my latest is this portobello and walnut concoction.

I have never used walnuts as a meaty filling before and I was a bit hesitant to do so, but I definitely wanted to have a more substantial taco and knew mushrooms alone weren’t going to cut it. I thought the crunch of the nuts would add an interesting contrast and I was right! They actually soaked up the flavor of my taco simmer sauce pretty well and I was quite pleased with the results!

 I have to admit, I do also love Chipotle’s cilantro lime rice (please don’t throw things at me) and was craving it something fierce so I made my own version. I had rice left over from this recipe so I figured, why not? It was the perfect accompaniment to the taco filling and gave it just the right amount of citrus kick. This dish is definitely going to become a staple in our house.
