In a large mixing bowl, mash the avocados and mix in the Greek yogurt, red onion, tomato, garlic, cilantro, citrus zest and juice. Season with salt and pepper, to taste, then cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate until ready to use.

Heat the oven to medium heat (350-400°F).

Skewer the paneer and vegetables, alternating between cheese, onion, bell pepper, and mushroom and distributing everything evenly across six skewers. Drizzle with olive oil and season liberally with salt and pepper.

Grill the skewers until the vegetables are softened and the edges of the cheese are browned. Grill the tortillas until toasted and cooked through, but not crispy. Remove everything from the heat.

Spread 1-2 tablespoons of guacamole over the middle of each tortilla, then top with the cheese and vegetables from one skewer. Garnish with chopped cilantro and hot sauce and serve!

Note: Paneer and panela are fresh cheeses that soften but maintain their shape when heated, which makes either great for these grilled veggie tacos. Paneer is very mild, and needs a bit more salt than panela, but use either and mix up the vegetables with any summer favorites!

Yield: 6 tacos
