I know that every vegetable I cook with is always my favorite, I always tell you that. The truth is I could not pick just one. There are so many vegetables that I like. I could never choose just one. I think that what makes it really difficult to choose only one, is that you can prepare each one of them in a thousand different ways. And each different way of preparing them, makes me think I’m eating a completely different dish.

For sure there are vegetables that are always in my fridge, like cucumbers (my children eat them every day and not because I tell them to because they love them), carrots, celery and mushrooms are always around.

I feel that mushrooms are at their best in fall. I love going shopping and look around all the different types there are. I ‘m pretty sure I’ll never get bored of them. Last week I bought chanterelle mushrooms. Have you ever seen them? They are yellow, well, beautiful golden yellow, good and delish. Their taste is earthy and nutty but milder than the cremini ones. Chanterelle mushrooms are a little more expensive than others but definitely worth the splurge because you’ll soon master the best way to prepare mushrooms.

 These mushroom taquitos are the simplest thing, I think more than a recipe is an idea or a method as I like to prepare mushrooms. You could add the mushrooms on a slice of baguette, or on top brown rice or eat them with pasta.  For me, as a Mexican and Mexican food lover, tacos are my way to go. Here is

I have never tried chanterelle mushrooms but now I want to buy them! I hope I find them. I like how simple yet delicious mushrooms are and one of my favorite way to serve is in tacos and quesadillas.
