Here’s everything you’ll need to make the greatest mushroom recipe ever:

Serving Suggestions

My husband likes to have some kind of meat with his meals and we add some grilled or sauteed shrimp to his dish. For me? I like to eat them as is!

These Champiñones go perfect with a side of refried beans, Mexican rice, served as tacos, with chicken, as a fill for enchiladas or as a side dish for Bistec Ranchero or even with just some crusty bread.

Another great idea is to serve as an appetizer! On top of tostadas, or a piece of sliced baguette and serve as tapas. Sooo good!

Either way you choose to serve them, they will be a hit!
