Mushrooms With Chipotle Peppers

Mushrooms with chipotle peppers are a perfect “meaty” vegetarian side, but they can also be a light meal all on their own. It’s a perfect topping for thick toasted bread smothered with butter. Or, for something more decadent (and beefier), try these tasty mushrooms on top of steak. You can even try chopping the mushrooms smaller and make a deliciously spicy Beef Wellington. Or pair them with eggs for a smoky morning breakfast that you won’t forget!

Mushrooms with chipotle peppers

Chipotle chili peppers are simply smoked dried jalapeño peppers. If jalapeños are too spicy (or not spicy enough), any smoked, dried pepper will work well with this recipe. For instance, ancho peppers are a great alternative here if you want something milder. They offer up a sweet and smoky flavor, but with much less heat (1,000 to 1,500 Scoville heat units compared to the chipotle at 2,500 to 8,000 SHU.)

Before you get started, be sure to check out how to rehydrate peppers for the best flavor.  This article will give you the simple steps to get the most from your dried peppers. You’ll need it for step one of this recipe.
