5:4 #2B Tuna Cream bites (p1)

Tuna Cream bites(p1)
approximately 12 mushrooms (stems removed and brushed of any dirt)
half pkg of light cream cheese (4 oz)
half can of tuna in water (drained)
1 rib of celery, de-threaded and chopped finely or minced
approximately 1 TAB chopped fresh cilantro
2 tsp lime juice
1 tsp cumin
approximately 4 dashes of TABASCO® brand Chipotle Pepper Sauce (or to taste)
salt and pepper to taste

Place prepared mushrooms on foil lined baking sheet and spray lightly with cooking oil and a light sprinkle of salt. then combine the rest of the ingredients in a mixing bowl with a hand mixer. salt or season as needed. Spoon tuna cream mixture into each mushroom. top with a light sprinkle of extra chopped cilantro if desired. Bake at 350 for about 20 min or til lightly browned on top and mushrooms are tender and juicy.

These were very flavorful and spuriously good. I think if topped with some paprika or bread crumbs that would be prettier but the flavor of these is really is what matters...right? :D
