Ingredients in Turkey Chilli Stuffed Mushrooms
To prepare these stuffed mushrooms, here are some notes on the ingredients used:
- Large Mushroom Caps: This recipe calls for large Portobello mushroom caps, which are perfect for filling due to their substantial size and meaty texture. To enhance their flavour and prevent excess moisture from being released during cooking, it's advisable to scrape out the black gills found on the underside of the caps. These gills can contain dark liquid that, when heated, can result in a somewhat unappetizing appearance and texture.
- Leftover Chilli: whenever I cook a pot of chilli I always like to make extra so I have it for filling baked potatoes and similar, so this Turkey Chilli is the perfect recipe for filling these mushrooms
- Mozzarella: the perfect melting cheese for topping these chilli filled mushrooms.
- Coriander (Cilantro): adds additional colour and flavour
- Spring Onions: the green part sliced is the perfect chilli topping
- Reduced Fat Soured Cream: Soured cream is added to the top to provide a cool,
- Salt and Pepper: These essential flavour enhancers play a crucial role in elevating the taste of your dishes. We use them to season the steak bites and recommend using them to season the final dish to taste as well. They ensure your food is never bland when used appropriately.
- Low Calorie Spray: use your preferred brand. I like to opt for one without any emulsifiers, such as a avocado or olive oil spray.
Substitutes and Variations
Other chilli: While some of this Turkey Chilli is used to fill the mushrooms, you can use any leftover chilli you like. Here are a few other options:

If you're unable to find large Portobello caps and have smaller mushrooms on hand, they will work, but you'll need to use 2 or 3 per person instead of just one to ensure there's enough filling. Additionally, please note that the cooking time will be slightly reduced.
To clean Portobello mushrooms, gently wipe them with a damp paper towel or use a soft brush to remove any dirt or debris. Avoid soaking them in water, as they can absorb excess moisture. Then scoop out the black gills with a spoon.
Yes, you can prepare them ahead of time by assembling the stuffing and filling the mushrooms, then refrigerating them until you're ready to bake. Just be sure to adjust the cooking time if the mushrooms are cold from the fridge.
