Every good thing given and every perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of lights, with whom there is no variation or shifting shadow. (James 1:17)

Bacon Stuffed Shrooms With a Kick

4 slices bacon

24 medium mushrooms (about 1 lbs.)

1 T. butter

cup finely chopped onion

1 clove garlic, finely chopped

1/3 cup finely chopped sweet red pepper

1-2 Jalapeno peppers, finely chopped

cup shredded cheddar cheese

cup chopped fresh parsley or 1 T. dried


In a medium glass bowl (not metal), mix the diced avocado, diced mango, lime juice, jalapenos, onion, garlic, cilantro, salt, and pepper. Store in a covered container in the refrigerator for at least 30 minutes, but no more than 1 hour before serving. The fruit will begin to "cook" in the lime juice and become soggy.
