And this stuffed mushroom recipe is so easy to whip up. Simply pop the stems off your mushrooms, stir the filling, spoon it in the mushroom cavities, and sprinkle with panela cheese.

California Panela Cheese is the secret weapon in this stuffed mushroom recipe, because it melts, bubbles and toasts into a marvelous crust that holds all the chorizo goodness inside.

And the California cream cheese unites the chorizo, mushrooms, and thyme in such a wonderful way, my only complaint is that each mushroom holds just a spoonful of filling.

Using high quality cheese, like those produced in California makes this simple stuffed mushrooms recipe really shine!

Stuffed Mushroom Recipe with Chorizo and Cheese

Ingredients:

  • 1 lb. crimini mushrooms
  • 4 oz. California cream cheese, softened
  • 3 oz. California Panela cheese, crumbled
  • 5 oz. Mexican chorizo
  • 1 Tb. fresh thyme leaves

Directions:

  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F and line a rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper. Pop all the stems off the mushrooms and lay them up side down on the baking sheet.
  2. Heat a small skillet to medium-high. Sauté the chorizo, until cooked through. Then place it in a mixing bowl with the cream cheese and thyme. Mix thoroughly, then spoon the chorizo filling into the cavity of each mushroom.
  3. Sprinkle the top of each mushroom with crumbled panela cheese and bake for 18-20 minutes. Until the tops are brown and the mushrooms have cooked through. Serve warm.

    My family loves cheese. One of my new favorites is Brie served with roasted garlic, baby greens and a tomato jam or chutney. Serve with toast or crackers.

    A cheese ball – or my best friend’s mom makes an amazingly simple snickers dip with cream cheese. Does that count? ;) I’ve never had baked brie, but I have a feeling it’d be my favorite if I had!
