Chorizo Spiced Stuffed Mushrooms
Chorizo Spice is a blend of hot chiles and paprika accented with savory garlic and an aromatic blend of other herbs and spices. Though it’s used to give chorizo sausage its signature red color and spicy flavor, it also makes a delicious addition to a wide range of foods, including these rich, creamy crab-stuffed mushrooms.
