Portabella Relleno

"This is a nice little recipe I found in a Mexican magazine. After translating the recipe I added a few additional ingredients on my own. The original recipe called for the mushrooms to be steamed but I think baking works just as well."

    We found this a little bland for our taste. Thanks

    This was easy, and pretty good but a little bland. It also got kind of watery when you cut into it...which was weird. Thanks for posting!

    I will double the spices next time. But great recipe. Husband loved it a lot too. Presentation was great too. And so simple to make. Will definetly make it again.

    We really enjoyed the flavor of this "relleno"! A great and easy way to eat a portabello (one of my favorite things in the world). My only complaint is that it wasn't quite hot enough all the way through; 10-15 minutes would be a better amount of time to cook for the first round, at least for us. Otherwise, fantastic and something we'll make many times over. Thanks!!

    I followed the recipe exactly and it looked a lot like the photos, but the flavor just was NOT for us. Neither Gato nor I enjoyed it. It seemed like a mushroom (which we love) stuffed with guacamole (which we love), but somehow the textures and the flavors didn't seem to compliment each other. It was worth a try and helped me use things up out of the pantry/refri. Thanks, anyway!

    This was really tasty and very easy to make. I used lime juice instead of lemon, garlic powder instead of fresh garlic, and pepper jack cheese instead of mozzarella. It is essentially hot guacamole in a big mushroom. It sounds odd, but it was very good.
