Mexican Portabello Mushroom Bowl

Recipe | Mexican Portabello Mushroom Bowl (Low Carb | Keto)

If you grow your own red onions and sweet bell peppers, this is a great go-to recipe for a nice low-carb or keto type of meal.

You can purchase large Portabello Mushrooms from your local grocery store in the Produce aisle. I particularly love this for any left-over taco meat that we might have — it is a great alternative for lunch the next day! You can swap in whatever cheese you have on hand although mozzarella is so tasty with this combo. If you have guacamole or ranch dressing, it is a nice topping as well.
