  • 1 cup Mexican cheese, shredded
  • Fresh herbs

  2. Take mushrooms and gently wipe with a clean kitchen towel or paper towel.  Remove and chop stems and set aside.  Take caps and set on a clean work board.  


  3. In a large sauté pan over medium high heat add one tablespoon of olive oil. Add in chorizo and cook for about 10 minutes.  Break apart while cooking with a wooden spoon. Use a slotted spoon and place in a bowl.  




  4. Using the fat n the pan add in onions, peppers, and chopped mushrooms. Sauté until the mushrooms have browned, stirring frequently, about 5-7 minutes. Add 1/2 teaspoon salt and pepper.  Add to the bowl with the sausage. 


  5. Using a chopper or food processor add mixture and pulse a few times.  You just want to finely chop the ingredients.  Add back in the bowl.  Mix in cheese.


  6. Place mushroom caps on a parchment paper lined baking sheet and divide mixture to fill each cap.  Drizzle a little olive oil and bake for 10-12 minutes.  

    Top with fresh herbs!
