I'm not going to star rate this because I had some problems with understanding the directions. The directions read to add the first 10 ingredients but would that include the lettuce. Do I really cook the lettuce, too? So, here's what I did instead: Cooked up local ground buffalo. Set aside. On a platter was arranged fresh tomatoes, various color of bell peppers diced, cheese, shredded lettuce, hot peppers, diced white onion. In small bowls there were whole cooked kidney beans and cooked white rice. Made tostada style because I shaped the fry bread too small to fold them over as tacos. The mushrooms were omitted.
