Stuffed Portabella Mushroom Caps

This recipe is SO good. You can make it with chopped cooked chicken or without any meat. This dish is filled with with flavor and texture from the crunch of the bread crumbs to the flavor packed onions and peppers. You could convert this recipe into an appetizer by using baby bellas or your favorite smaller mushroom. YUM YUM YUM!!!
