Oyster Mushroom Taco Meat
First clean your oyster mushrooms by taking a damp paper towel and wiping your mushrooms off one by one. Don't rinse your mushrooms because mushrooms hold a lot of water.
Next, split your oyster mushrooms to resemble "shredded chicken". Next add your oyster mushrooms to a large mixing glass bowl along with 3 tablespoons of homemade taco seasoning mix, lime juice, and 1 tablespoon grapeseed oil. Toss until oyster mushrooms are fully coated. Cover with with saran wrap and allow mushrooms to marinate for 10 minutes.
Grab a cast iron skillet (or whatever skillet you have) and place over medium high heat. Add 1 teaspoon of grapeseed oil to your pan and then add your marinated mushrooms to the skillet. Sauté tossing for about 2 to 3 minutes until mushrooms soften a bit.
Next add water, tomato paste, and 2 teaspoons of homemade taco seasoning and mix with your mushrooms. Turn down heat to medium low and simmer until sauce has thickened for 3 - 5 minutes. Once done remove from heat and get ready to assemble your nachos.
Assembling of Nachos
You can use any toppings you desire these are just the ones I choose. Grab your air fryer tortilla chips and layer it in a pan, plate or cast iron skillet. Top with your oyster mushroom taco meat, dairy free vegan cheese, store bought sour cream, vegan guacamole, fresh cilantro, and fresh jalapenos.
