  7. Stuff mushroom caps with the mixture.
  8. Turn grill onto medium heat.

  10. Add mushrooms to grill, stuffing side up, and cook for about 5 minutes with the lid closed. After 5 minutes, turn the mushrooms half way and cook for another 5 minutes with the lid closed. Reduce grill heat if mushrooms begin to brown too much on the bottom.
  11. Remove mushrooms from grill.
  12. To serve, top with a pinch of chili powder and fresh parsley, if desired. Enjoy!
