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.

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 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.

    my mother helps us out by getting a food box for us every month. Each time it’s a total surprise what we’re going to get, kinda like a lottery. This month’s lottery brought us two and a half pounds of HUGE button mushrooms and a couple packets of mexican chorizo. I’m so glad i found your recipe, though i had to make a few adjustments. We didn’t have enough cream cheese, but we DID have some cornbread cubes in the freezer waiting to be stuffing. No panela, but a large block of Monterrey jack. And finally, it’s currently flirting with 100 degrees here, so turning on the oven sounds like a horrid idea, so these bad boys are going on the grill! Just as soon has the HusBeast gets home…

    My recent favorite is a Sommer recipe: Brie and Pear tart. when I cut it into small slices it’s an appetizer; wider slices, it becomes a first course. Every time I serve this appetizer, I get tons of compliments. I have tried different cheeses and cheese combos, such as mozzarella + a stronger cheese, or a smoked + a more mild cheese.)

    cream cheese-stuffed jalapenos, wrapped in bacon, baked til bacon is crisp & jalapeno is tender. cream cheese filling is fantastic on its own, however, if you are ambitious you can sprinkle the bacon with brown sugar before baking.
