Mushrooms You Actually Can´t Resist | Champiñones al Chilindrón Recipe

These Spanish mushrooms, known as Champiñones al Chilindrón, are probably the BEST tasting mushrooms that hail from Spain. We´re talking layers of flavors, easy to make and all done in under 30 minutes.

You can serve these delicious mushrooms either warm or at room temperature and are perfect as a tapas appetizer or even as a side dish. Next to some roasted potatoes and grilled shrimp skewers.

Spanish Champiñones al Chilindrón
To make this recipe, I used large white mushrooms. But you can use any mushrooms you like. Though I do recommend using white mushrooms, as their mild flavor does not over-power the dish.

TIPS & TRICKS to Make this Recipe: The secret to this recipe is to cook the ingredients at a higher heat. This way the water from the mushrooms gets cooked off and they end up with an incredible texture and absorb all the flavors in the pan.
