Our Chorizo and Cheese Stuffed Mushroom Recipe!
These little atomic flavor bombs combined all the best attributes of their ingredients into fabulous one bite wonders.
Earthy, spicy, nutty, creamy, salty, kaboom!
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!
And don’t they look awesome?
Molten cheesy goodness with a punch of spice.
Chorizo and Cheese Stuffed Mushrooms are not only a good choice for tomorrow’s appetizer, they will make brilliant party snacks for all your holiday parties and game days this season.
With just 5 ingredients, this stuffed mushroom recipe is quick to put together. And you can believe they disappear just as fast!
