  • Rating ****

4 portions, 6 cups


  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 1 cup chopped onion
  • 1 tablespoon minced garlic
  • 2 tablespoons chili powder
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1 1/2 pounds (about 7 1/2 cups) fresh white mushrooms, sliced
  • 8 ounces (about 2 1/2 cups) fresh shiitake mushrooms, sliced
  • 1 can (14 1/2 ounces) stewed tomatoes
  • 1 can (19 ounces) white kidney beans, rinsed and drained
  • 1/2 cup sliced ripe olives


In large saucepan, heat oil until hot; add onion and garlic. Cook, stirring frequently, until onion is tender, about 5 minutes. Stir in chili powder and cumin; cook until fragrant about 30 seconds. Add white and shiitake mushrooms; cook, stirring occasionally, until mushrooms are crisp-tender, 6 to 8 minutes. Add stewed tomatoes, beans, olives and 1/2 cup water. Simmer uncovered, to blend flavors, about 10 minutes.

Serve with tortillas; garnished with shredded lettuce, diced fresh tomatoes and shredded cheddar, if desired.
