  • Add the serrano chili and mushroom stems. Season with very little salt. Saute for 5 minutes.
  • Stirring occasionally. Once done, turn off the stove. Let the mushroom garlic mixture cool.
  • In a medium bowl, combine the cream cheese, cheese, taco seasoning, cilantro, scallions, black pepper, and the cooled mushroom garlic mix. Mix well until all the ingredients are combined.
  • Add Taco Bell sauce, or you can also use Trader Joe's Spicy Taco Sauce. Any taco sauce will do. Mix well.
  • Mix well. This is what you should have.
