You can make the rice and chilies a day ahead, or even all of the stuffing a day ahead and keep it, covered, in the refrigerator.

  • Poblano chilies
  • 4 jumbo
    portabella mushrooms
  • 1 small
    yellow onion, finely diced
  • 5 ounces
    baby spinach
  • 1 cup
    cooked rice
  • 1/2 cup
    shredded sharp cheddar cheese
  • 2 tablespoon
    chopped cilantro
    olive oil
    freshly ground black pepper
  1. Preheat the oven to 450°F. Place the chilies on a baking sheet and bake until skins start to turn black, turning once, about 20 minutes. Remove the sheet from oven and carefully wrap a piece of foil over the chilies. Allow the chilies to sit for 10 minutes, then remove the foil and remove the skin from the chilies. Remove the seeds and membranes as well and finely chop. Set aside.
  2. Preheat the broiler. Drizzle both sides of the mushrooms with a little olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Broil the mushrooms, turning, until softened, 10-12 minutes. Transfer to a plate, stem side down; let drain and cool.
  3. Meanwhile, put a medium skillet over medium heat. Add just enough olive oil to coat the bottom of the pan and add the onion with a pinch of salt. Cook the onion until softened, about 6 minutes. Add the baby spinach (you may have to do this in batches) and cook until wilted. Turn the heat to medium-high and cook until the liquid in the pan has cooked off. In a bowl, mix the spinach with the rice, cheese, cilantro, and the chilies. Season the mixture to taste with salt and pepper.
  4. Preheat the oven to 325°F. Season the mushroom caps with salt and pepper. Spoon the rice mixture into the mushrooms, mounding it slightly. Transfer the mushrooms to a baking dish and bake for about 20 minutes, or until the cheese is melted and the top is lightly browned. Serve warm or at room temperature.
