Add a little Mexican zing to your next batch of chorizo stuffed mushrooms with the spicy flavor of fresh chorizo sausage and nutty Manchego cheese. These melt in your mouth mushrooms are perfect for your holiday party.
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!

Love mushrooms but never tried Manchego cheese before – I wonder if it’s available in the UK. The photos definitely make this look so delicious so I’m now on the hunt for some Manchego cheese! Thanks for the recipe 🙂
I hope you can find it…you can also use Asiago or Pecorino Romano if you have trouble finding Manchego. Good luck!
