Cheese, bacon, and peppers! I usually throw an habanero in when we are making it just for us. These are also great with a salad for dinner. This filling is also a good stuffing for jalapenos.

Very tasty appetizer!! Made this for a big crowd and wasn't sure of everyone's tolerance or liking hot jalapeños so I reduced the amount of these to only 2 (could have safely gone with three). After mixing everything together I thought it needed just a bit more seasoning so added a bit of salt and maybe 1/4 teaspoon of cayenne pepper. This took it over the top and everyone loved them! Thanks for a great recipe KristenM1. Read More

If I make it again I will add some goat cheese and maybe some pine nuts or pecans for texture. The recipe as written sounds great but does not deliver. Read More

My husband and I really enjoyed these. I made them exactly as described and had plenty of the cream cheese mixture to make more mushrooms than the recipe called for. I will be making these again. Read More

Family and guests loved them! I used Serrano peppers to make them a little spicier. We like a kick of heat. Read More

UPDATE: The mushrooms were AMAZING and my guests couldn't get enough of them. THanks so much for this wonderfully easy recipe!! ORIGINAL REVIEW: Okay at first the cumin ingredient freaked me out and seemed out of place but I still used it. And so glad I did! Also I just used a very tiny can of diced jalapenos drained - easier than donning gloves and chopping. Admittedly I have not even stuffed and baked the mushrooms yet because I am finding this to be one awesome cracker spread!!! So I guess I shouldn't rate the recipe in full just yet but I'll give the filling a high five and I'm sure the shrooms will be awesome! Read More

really good balance I used smoked cheddar (all I had on hand) and it was very good. Cumin was a nice touch. I tossed in a bit of parsley since it was on the cutting board. Read More

These turned out awesome again!! We are really into super hot foods though so we made these using Habaneros instead of Jalapenos. what an awesome flavour. Even those that thought they were "too hot" still said they were yummy. 100% recommended Read More
