Enchilada Stuffed Mushrooms

Enchilada Stuffed Mushrooms Final 2 You guys. I have a problem. I’m addicted to the ‘shrooms.

No, not the street drug kind…..

{oh you guys!}

The 14.2 pound carton of baby portobello mushrooms you get from Costco. I LOVE mushrooms….and Costco.

I clearly cannot be trusted in that store. {Please recall this huge jar of pesto. YEAH.}

Why does one need 14.2 pounds of mushrooms? Because they were dirt cheap. That’s why.

You guys, I have become a mushroom stuffing FOOL! I just can’t get enough of these little guys!

My obsession started with these Blue Cheese Filled Bacon Wrapped Mushrooms that I made on a whim. The obsession grew with my Pizza Stuffed Mushrooms and now it has morphed into a full on problem because now I have created a monster: Enchilada Stuffed Mushrooms.

Amazing bubbly, cheesy and creamy stuffed mushrooms that magically taste like straight up enchiladas.

You don’t know it right now but you absolutely positively need these in your life. I didn’t realize this until I took my first bite of this experiment and just about fainted.

Fainted from pure bliss and joy. Ooey gooey, spicy and delicious enchilada mushrooms.

And the funny part is they take like 10 minutes or less to make. Honest to goodness low carb enchilada heaven in 30 minutes!

Don’t believe me? Take a peek:

PS- you MUST make these.

PPS- I think Costco is my enabler.

Enchilada Stuffed Mushrooms 1 Start out by cleaning a whole bunch of baby bellas off and popping out the stems.

Enchilada Stuffed Mushrooms 2 Place these into a lightly greased baking dish and set aside.

Enchilada Stuffed Mushrooms 3 Now for this ridiculous filling–start out by mixing some softened cream cheese just to get things working…

Enchilada Stuffed Mushrooms 4 add in some taco seasoning, parmesan cheese,

Enchilada Stuffed Mushrooms 5 sliced green onion,

Enchilada Stuffed Mushrooms 6 cheddar cheese,

Enchilada Stuffed Mushrooms 7 salt and pepper.

Enchilada Stuffed Mushrooms 8 Stir it all up and voila! An amazingly cheesy and flavorful filling. I know it doesn’t look like much, but trust the Lauren.

Enchilada Stuffed Mushrooms 9 Spoon the filling into those cute little mushroom caps and……are you ready for this??

Enchilada Stuffed Mushrooms 10 smother the top with enchilada sauce

Enchilada Stuffed Mushrooms 11 and more cheese for good measure. I do it because I can.

Enchilada Stuffed Mushrooms Final Bake these off for 20 minutes and voila! Brown and bubbly enchilada stuffed mushrooms.

Enchilada Stuffed Mushrooms Final 1 Feel free to top these with anything you like–sour cream, cilantro, salsa….whatever. OR, be like me and shove a million into your mouth straight up…thus burning your tongue.

It’s your choice. Either way, these are crazy good. You’re welcome.

Happy weekend!

    I positively adore mushrooms and these have my name written all over them. I have never seen a 14.2 pound of baby bella mushrooms at my Costco and I am heartbroken over it. Hmmmmph

    Thank you for this genius idea, I cannot wait to try them!

    I love the new ways you think up to use Mexican-style flavours and ingredients. I’m only just starting to come to terms with mushrooms after a childhood of hatred but these look like they would be the perfect next step!

    anonymous — April 27, 2012 at 11:18 pm

    Ohhhhh, man. I’ve GOT to try these. I am a mushroom hater (sorry- blame the canned cream of mushroom soup!) BUT these look like they would work miracles. And they did. I am officialy a “shroom” lover just by lookin at the screen. THANK YOU!! My mom and grandma are obsessed with mushrooms. BTW I’m 13. 😀


  30. #
    Dinuka — April 27, 2012 at 11:21 pm

    Ya know, you COULD potentially call these healthy by the sneaky shrooms peeking underneath that “OH MAMA” melty heavenly party in my mouth CHEDDAR (my fav)!

    Julia — April 30, 2012 at 3:35 pm

    I have that very same container of mushrooms from costco in my fridge right now. AND PESTO TOO! And the 4 lb bag of broccoli. I can not be trusted there, AT ALL! So glad to see such a creative and delicious new way to have stuffed mushrooms AND enchiladas!


  38. #
    Katrina — May 4, 2012 at 3:51 am

    I’m so happy I found this recipe! We’re doing a “snack day” at work tomorrow that’s texmex theme for cinco de mayo, so I’m making these. I have everything prepped and in the fridge now. Tomorrow morning i’ll pour on the enchilada sauce, bake, then transfer to a crockpot to transport and keep warm. I’m excited about how good they look like they’ll taste! :-)


    • Lauren — May 4th, 2012 @ 4:27 am

      How awesome! Sounds like a fun lunch! Hope you like them Katrina! :)

    Nancy — May 7, 2012 at 12:00 pm

    My husband’s family was over yesterday so I decided to make these. They were SO good! Everyone loved them. Will definitely make them again. Thanks!

    Stephanie — May 7, 2012 at 1:38 pm

    Wait…are you sure it wasn’t 14.2 ounces, not pounds? That would be a really really big box of mushrooms, they’re so light! (and for the record, I would TOTALLY buy a 14 lb box too). In either case, these look great!


  41. #
    Martha — May 9, 2012 at 3:29 am

    OMG…so making these this weekend for a friends B-Day party. TY!

    PammyJay — May 12, 2012 at 1:58 pm

    I love mushrooms, but my family doesn’t. I made this filling and put it in filo cups. I eliminated the enchilada sauce.( I thought they’d get soggy), We are having them tomorrow for a Mother’s Day appetizer….I’ll let you know how they turn out. Thanks, Lauren & Happy Mom’s Day to you!!


  43. #
    PammyJay — May 14, 2012 at 11:54 am

    Lauren, I did make them. They all went and everyone asked me to make them again. I was just wishing they were mushrooms!!…


  44. #
    Michelle @ Brown Eyed Baker — May 28, 2012 at 5:06 am

    These look awesome! They make me realize I haven’t made enchiladas in eons. I must remedy that, and make these, as well!
