One of my favorite veggies are mushrooms and they are so versatile.

They are great added to pastas and salads, delicious on top of pizza and are a must next to any cut of grilled beef.

They are also great when showcased on their own as a party appetizer.

This recipe can be made for any holiday and I especially love to bring out this appetizer platter on Cinco de Mayo.

How to make chorizo stuffed mushrooms

For this recipe I wanted a bite-sized morsel with a little zing and a cheesy finish.

I chose baby bella mushrooms for this recipe although portobellos would be just as delicious.

I snapped off the stems and placed them cap side down in a cast iron skillet.

Next, I cooked a spicy chorizo mixture with manchego cheese, spices, red wine and Worchestershire sauce.

I also mixed in panko breadcrumbs to help bond my ingredients together and stuffed each mushroom cap full.

Finally, I baked the mushroms in the oven for about 20 minutes until they were done.

Baking these mushroom caps in a cast iron skillet in the oven helps distribute the heat and seal in the juices from the mushrooms.

A baking sheet is another option if you don’t have a cast iron skillet.

This mixture paired with the earthy flavor of the mushroom is just delicious.

I also have stuffed this chorizo and manchego cheese mix inside boneless chicken breasts before grilling.

No more boring chicken!
