Fiesta Friday: Grilled Mushroom & Poblano Tacos with Pico de Gallo

I thought Lent was going to make Fiesta Fridays difficult but after searching around on the internet, I realized there are a ton of vegetarian options for tacos (duh). Meaty portobello mushrooms add heft and deep flavor to these spicy tacos. I love how thick and juicy the mushrooms are and how their earthy flavor pairs with the spicy pico de gallo. You can substitute feta or any other crumbly cheese if queso fresco is hard to find.
