Baja Sauce

Combine all ingredients in a mortar and pestle (or a small food processor) until all ingredients are smooth. Set aside.

Corn Salsa

Heat up 1tbsp olive oil in a medium sized pan over a high heat. Sauté corn for 2 minutes until golden, add to a bowl with the rest of ingredients, then mix together. Set aside

Mexican Mushrooms

Then, marinate the mushrooms with all ingredients, panfry on a medium heat for 2 minutes on each side, to avoid burning the marinade. Set aside.

Crunchy Soft Tacos

Finally, cut both avocados in half and remove each pip, setting aside. Using a fork inside each half, mash the avocado together with lime juice, sour cream and olive oil to form a rough guacamole.


To preserve the bright green and avoid oxidation, you can return the pips to the centre of the avocados and stick the halves together to close till you are ready to use.


Spread each soft tortilla with a spoonful of guacamole, then wrap around the hard taco shell.


Gently press the soft tortilla to the sides of the hard taco shells, using the guacamole as a glue. Repeat with remaining taco shells and soft tortillas


To serve, spoon a little of the salsa into the base of the hard taco, top with Mexican mushrooms and drizzle with baja sauce. Eat immediately.
