Chorizo Stuffed Portobello Mushrooms

If you love mushrooms like I do this makes a great snack, but is hearty enough to be served as a meal too. It has a great blend of flavors and goes great with pasta so dress it up, or dress it down, but put this easy-to-prep meal on your planner!

  • Jumbo Portobello Mushrooms
  • Chorizo
  • Fresh Basil Leaves
  • Fresh Mozzarella Cheese
  • Tomato Slices
  • Italian Seasonings, Salt, Pepper
  • Olive Oil, Butter
  1. Fry the chorizo in a frying pan. Because of the red seasoning of chorizo, it's difficult to see the meat color and tell when it's thoroughly cooked, but you will notice a change in the texture as the meat will change from the mushy, raw meat texture to a more granular texture.
  2. While the chorizo is cooking, gently saute' the mushrooms in a small amount of olive oil mixed with butter. Cook on both sides but only for about 2 minutes per side as you still want the mushroom to be firm enough to hold together.
  3. Stuff the mushroom with chorizo until you have a nice even layer.
  4. Layer some fresh mozzarella cheese on top of the chorizo and then put the whole stuffed mushroom in a toaster oven until the cheese melts.
  5. Layer some fresh basil leaves on top, and then the tomato slices.
  6. Season the tomatoes with Italian seasoning, salt and pepper.
  7. Enjoy your hot mess!
