Meaty, smoky shiitake mushrooms are a clever addition to easy beef tacos, which are far superior to any at your local taco joint. The fresh salsa on top perfectly contrasts the meaty filling, thanks to a combination of sweet corn, spicy chiles, and bright, peppery radishes. To add some fun to dinnertime, let the family build the tacos themselves, starting with warm flour tortillas, piling on the beef and mushroom mixture, and finishing with the salsa, fresh cilantro, and their any amount of hot sauce. Save extra corn salsa as an excellent dip for chips.
