Wild and Mild Stuffed Mushrooms
Notes: Jeff Hanley of Los Gatos makes two varieties of stuffed mushrooms - habanero for asbestos palates and blue cheese for those with milder tastes. For the former, he uses two of the fiery chilies and has been known to clear a room while chopping them. We've reduced the chili to one for a moderate heat level. If you want to sweat, though, add another one or don't remove the seeds and veins, which is where the heat is concentrated. You can prepare the mushrooms through step 7 up to 1 day ahead; cover and chill. Uncover and bake as directed in step 8.
