Chili-Stuffed Mushrooms on the Char-Broil Big Easy

Well now, these were different! I’d never thought of making chili-stuffed mushrooms on my Char-Broil Big Easy. Not even in my dreams, where sometimes odd food things can happen. I have to say, they’re quite the addicting little bites. Further proof that the Char-Broil Big Easy isn’t just for poultry (but let’s face it, it does one heck of a good job at that!).

You could definitely spice up your version of chili-stuffed mushrooms. Use a spicy chili (you probably saw that coming) and shredded habanero jack cheese. Top the mushrooms with jalapeno just before serving. That’ll get the party going!

Also try my pesto-stuffed mushrooms on the Big Easy.

  • 16 cremini mushrooms stems removed
  • 1/2 cup chili
  • 1/4 cup cream cheese softened
  • 1/4 cup shredded cheddar cheese plus a bit more for topping
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper. to taste


  • Fire up your Big Easy.
  • Combine the chili, cream cheese, and 1/4 cup of cheddar. Season with salt and pepper, to taste.
  • Spoon mixture into the center of the mushrooms. Push it in (gently) to fill the cavity. It's ok to mound it up a good bit too.
  • Transfer the mushrooms to the Big Easy basket and the Bunk Bed Basket.
  • Place into the Big Easy and cook until the mushrooms are starting to soften, about 15 minutes.
  • You can add the cheese now and return the mushrooms to the Big Easy to melt it, or remove them, transfer to a platter and sprinkle with more cheese.
