Hunan Chili Mushrooms Part Deux

Last month I created this recipe to answer a big veggie craving. It was delicious but not very pretty. (Click here for original post) Let's face it, it was BROWN! And it did not photograph well at all. Well I have made it two times since then and made some modifications. I used baby bellas halved or quartered depending on their size. This fixed the "brown" problem. I also added a little more soy sauce and sherry so there is more sauce in the finished dish. I also added to the fiery heat of the dish. I now use the entire jalapeno seeds and all. It is even better and so much more attractive. My only regret is I still haven't taken a photo to do it justice. I will keep trying. I see myself making this dish very often.
