Add the mushrooms to a food processor. Pulse in 10 second intervals until the mushrooms are finely chopped into pieces of similar size.
Heat a large skillet over medium-high. Add the mushrooms and cook until they just begin to soften, 2 minutes. Add the turkey. Continue to cook for 7 to 10 minutes, until the meat is no longer pink and cooked completely through. Turn off the heat. All liquid should evaporate. If it doesn’t, drain the blend.
Stir in the pineapple juice, chili powder, cumin, garlic powder, paprika, salt, chipotle chili powder, oregano, and black pepper. Return the heat to medium and cook for 1 more minute, stirring often.
To make the slaw, stir together all ingredients in a large bowl.
For each taco, top a warm tortilla with the al pastor mushroom and turkey blend. Top with some slaw before serving.
