Recipe type: Main
Note: You might want to add a little bit of jalapenos or chipotle peppers to give it a little kick.

  • •1/2 large onion, chopped

  • •500 gr (1/2 lb) ground beef

  • •4 TBSP butter

  1. In a large saucepan sautee onions in olive oil. Add garlic and ground beef and cook until brown. Chop the stems of the mushrooms and add them to the meat.
  2. Add bell peppers, tomatoes, raisins and parsley. Season to taste.
  3. Cook for about 25 minutes until most of the liquid has evaporated.
  4. Turn the mushrooms upside down and place 1 TBSP of butter on each one. Stuff with the meat.
  5. Mix cheeses in a medium bowl and top the mushrooms with it.
  6. Broil for about 10 minutes (if the mushrooms are small it will take less time) or until the mushrooms are tender and the cheese brown and beautiful.
  7. Serve over lettuce leaves and enjoy.
