Here we go!
This is one of my favorite videos ever because I love stuffed mushrooms and I love Mexican food.
This was the first one that we recorded in the last shoot and we were all hungry. My performance is not epic, but the food that is turned out is amazing. This is a very simple, entry-level preparation that most people would enjoy.
I intended to call this one Mushroom “Sopes“, but I went with Carne Asada Stuffed Mushrooms instead. Sopesare a traditional Mexican antojitothat can also be called pellizcadas. They are a thick bottomed tortilla with pinched edges and while they usually contain refried beans, my Paleo version does not.
I want to give a quick shout out to my boy, Chris Holloman. He has joined the team as photographer for these shoots. Where I used to attempt to do it all, I am learning to hand things off and I feel confident handing the photography to him. As you can see from the above pictures, he has an amazing talent for food photography.

If you like Mexican-style grilled steak, have a gander at my Lime Seared Skirt Steak with Avo Pico.
Get out there and give these a go. You will NOT be disappointed.
Reminding you that anything is possible and that where there’s a will, there’s a way!

“Keeping It Paleo!”
We have 2 Slices of round steak, at 4oz each. 1oz of steak equals one block, so therefore we get 8 protein blocks from the steak.
Every mushroom will probably give us about 1 cup, and with 4 cups equaling one block, that gives us 3 blocks from the mushrooms. Additionally we get about three more form the guac ingredients. One from the ½ onion diced up, which would give us about 2/3 of a cup, which is one block. 1 from the tomato. Assuming it fills about one cup, which is one block, we can count that as one block. The additional block comes from the lime juice, cilantro and garlic to bring the total carb count to 6.
Our Fats are coming form the olive oil and the avocado. We have total 2 teaspoons of olive oil. 1/3 of a teaspoon of olive oil equals one block so in one teaspoon we get three blocks, so 6 total form the 2 teaspoons. Additionally we have the avocado. We know that one avocado gives us about one cups worth, and 1 tablespoon equals one block, so one avocado gives us about 16 fat blocks.
This recipe breaks up into 2 – 3 block protein, and carbs, and 11 fat block meal. Its very healthy, and the fat block count can be taken down with less guac, but who wants less guac? So, as with any recipe with extra fat blocks, enjoy them during the meal, just make sure to subtract some from other eating times throughout the day.
