Ingredients

  • 16 medium mushrooms (I used cremini)
  • 1/2 pound chorizo sausage
  • 8 ounces cream cheese
  • 1/2 cup red sweet pepper finely chopped
  • 1 cup onion finely chopped
  • grated parmesan cheese to top
  • parsley flakes to top (optional)

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350.
  • Rinse and gently scrub mushrooms.  Gently remove stems, finely chop, and set aside.
  • Heat skillet to medium.  Add sausage, mushroom stems, onion, and pepper, chopping sausage into small pieces with spoon or spatula.
  • Saute 5-10 minutes or until onion is translucent and sausage is lightly browned. 
  • Lower heat and add cream cheese in small spoonfuls, stirring in as cheese melts.
  • When cheese is fully melted and blended in, remove from heat.
  • Fill each mushroom cap with sausage mixture and place on oven-safe pan (cookie sheet, casserole dish, or iron skillet).
  • Top with parmesan cheese and parsley flakes and bake for 10-15 minutes or until browned, cheese is melty, and juice is flowing underneath mushrooms.
