2 cups chopped onion
3 tbsps vegan butter
8 oz. Don Felipe Chorizo (your choice!)
8 oz. vegan cream cheese
1/4 cups vegan mayonnaise
1/3 cup vegan mozzarella cheese
1/4 cup chopped chives
2-8oz crescent roll dough
16 button mushroom caps
Step 1: Prepare Chorizo and Onions
Cook the chorizo according to package instructions and set it aside.
Step 2: Caramelize Onions and Prepare Filling
In a medium heat, melt butter and add onions. Season with salt and cook over medium-low heat for approximately 20 minutes until the onions are soft and caramelized.
In a medium bowl, combine cream cheese and mayo until smooth. Mix in mozzarella, caramelized onions, and chives. Fold in the cooked chorizo.
Step 3: Preheat Oven and Prepare Muffin Tins
Preheat the oven to 375°F.
Butter and flour two 12-cup mini muffin tins.
Pat each crescent roll into 12 squares (24 total). Gently place each square into a muffin cup, pushing down the center slightly to form a cup shape. Set aside.
Step 4: Assemble and Bake
Place mushrooms into a casserole dish.
Distribute the filling evenly among the muffin cups and mushrooms, using about 1-2 tablespoons of filling for each.
Bake the mushrooms for 20-25 minutes until they release moisture.
Bake the muffin tins for 9-10 minutes or until golden brown.
Serve warm and enjoy!
