These marinated 'shrooms develop an excellent flavor...the cumin and the red pepper adds just the right amount of heat. I didn't have Mexican oregano so I used the plain. Thanks Mirjam, I will make these often!

This is another winner! We're at that time when it's too late for North American Sweet onions and too early for South American, so I used a Large Red Onion. If this is as good with Sweets as it is with Reds I wil have no complaints. Thanx!
