This recipe for black bean mushroom chili calls for brown mushrooms, which have a deeper, earthier flavor than their sisters the white button mushrooms. The white button mushrooms are immature versions of the brown Crimini mushroom, which in turn is an immature version of the Portobello mushroom. Who knew?
