Chorizo Mushroom Bites #SundaySupper (w/ Sara Moulton)

This week for #SundaySupper we are cooking up recipes inspired by Sara Moulton's Everyday Family Dinners cookbook.  Sara Moulton will be speaking at the First Annual Food and Wine Conference (July 19-21), hosted by #SundaySupper founder & creator, Isabel from Family Foodie.

I have been a long-time Sara Moulton fan since I first discovered the Food Network some 15+ years ago.  I watched her show, Cooking Live, religiously.  To this day, I still remember and use some of the secrets/tips I learned from watching Sara's show.  (Like adding grated onion to my hamburger meat and actually grating the onion over the meat because the juice from the onion is what really adds the flavor for a tastier burger.)

The recipe I chose is one my whole family loves...Chorizo Stuffed Mushrooms.  We make them EVERY time we go to el rancho (the family ranch).  What I love about these Chorizo Mushroom Bites, aside from their great taste, is how easy they are to make.  Mushrooms, chorizo, and cheese...that's it.  Just three ingredients.   We usually throw them on the grill, but you can also bake or broil them in your oven.  I've even baked them in my handy dandy toaster oven.   Just be sure to make these when there is a crowd around to help you eat them, otherwise you'll end up eating them all by yourself because they're that good.

Chorizo Mushroom Bites
(Recipe inspired by Sara Moulton's Everyday Family Dinners)

  • 8 oz. white button or cremini mushrooms, stems removed
  • 6 oz. chorizo (pork, beef, or even soy) 
  • Manchego cheese, sliced or grated (you can also use Queso Fresco or a mild cheddar) 
Remove casing from chorizo.  Crumble chorizo into non-stick skillet and cook over medium heat until fully cooked.  (Chorizo turns a dark red when done.)  Let cool slightly.

Wipe mushrooms with a paper towel to clean off any excess dirt.  Lightly sprinkle the inside of the mushrooms with salt. Fill each mushroom cap with 1 to 2 teaspoons of cooked chorizo.  Arrange stuffed mushrooms on a lightly greased baking sheet.  

Top Chorizo Stuffed Mushrooms with cheese.

Grill, broil, or bake in an oven at 350°F for about 10 minutes or until the cheese has completely melted and turns a light golden brown.

You can enjoy these Chorizo Mushroom Bites as is, or serve with your favorite salsa.  Enjoy!!!

*Recipe yields 15 to 20 Chorizo Mushroom Bites.

  1. Perfect appetizer for a party! Love chorizo and cheese.

  2. I'm always looking for a good stuffed mushroom recipe! Thanks Leslie!

  3. So tasty! My husband is always all over anything involving mushrooms - I think he'd love these!

  4. Oh, yum. Even those it's just three simple ingredients, chorizo packs such a flavor punch, I know I'd love these beyond compare.

  5. Chorizo is one of my favorites. These look amazing!

  6. Oh wow...these look amazing! And 3 ingredients? Even better!

  7. That really is a simple mushroom recipe! Love that you shared Sara's tip about grating onions into meat. I just chop mine.

  8. This is so simple! I'm a sucker for anything with choizo... yum!

  9. Oh, my. So spicy and incredible! Love that cheesy topping, too!!!

  10. These are so easy! Great idea for a quick appetizer at an impromptu get together.

  11. I love 3 ingredient recipes, especially when they are three of my favorite ingredients. so much simpler than my stuffed mushrooms, good idea!

  12. These are right up my alley... quick, simple and delicious! Just 3 ingredients but they look amazing!

  13. oh my goodness these look soooo good! I LOVE manchego cheese. . one of my faves! yum!

  14. Leslie, I am adding these to my appetizer list! perfect! I also make "poppers" using chorizo and bacon. Basically, you slice jalapeños in half, seed and devein, then stuff with chorizo, wrap a half or third of a strip of bacon around it, and bake....I think I am going to try some with manchego instead of bacon. Yummmmmm

  15. This is perfect for a pork'tacular bbq party I have coming up next week!

  16. Oh, I think I could use soyrizo and make them vegetarian, I love mushrooms, what a great idea!
