Cream Cheese Guacamole Stuffed Mushrooms

Stuffed mushrooms make me happy.

If you gave me stuffed mushrooms every day for a week, I wouldn’t mind.  I’ve been known to pass up dessert for stuffed mushrooms.  In know, crazy, right?  Those little tiny edible bowls loaded with some delicious concoction get me every time.

And because you need an appetizer for New Year’s I needed to whip these up for you.

Let’s talk about washing or not washing mushrooms.

There are 2 schools of thought.  Most say don’t wash them because they retain the water.  Hmmm, sounds like my body.

Anyway, I once saw Alton Brown weigh them before and after washing them and the amount of water they retained was insignificant.  They’re dirty and wiping them off  just doesn’t cut it for me.  I wash them.  You decide what you want to do.

I made guacamole.  I mixed some low fat cream cheese into it.  The cream cheese adds a little richness to the creamy smoothness.  I tipped my bottle of cholula hot sauce over the guacamole…(just a  few drops) and voila, mushroom stuffing deliciousness.

I roasted the mushrooms at 375 for about 8 minutes, let them cool and brought the two together.  Yes.

Don’t throw the stems away.  Use them in an omelet or something.

I stuffed 6 larger sized baby portobellos.  If you get the normal sized baby portobellos this recipe will fill about 10.  If you need more than 10 just double the recipe.

So if you’re looking for an appetizer that’s easy on the waistline try these.  They’ll be a hit.

Olena has a light version as well.  Check hers out here.

    Interesting about washing vs. wiping mushrooms. I need to give it a try. Also so many variations on cooking time.
    Thank you for including my recipe! I like little spoons – very convenient to grab and pop in your mouth.:) Literally you can be eating mushrooms by spoonfulls.:)
