Huitlacoche Quesadillas



  1. Heat oil in large saucepan on medium heat and cook onions till they become soft and translucent.
  2. Add huitlacoche, corn, chopped peppers, and cilantro. Cook until the huitlacoche is black and slimy, and you no longer see big, spongey clumps. Add some water or chicken broth if it starts drying out.
  3. Remove from heat and season to taste with salt and pepper.
  4. Heat a griddle or large skillet over low heat, and warm both sides of a tortilla until it is softened.
  5. Spread a few spoonfuls of huitlacoche and a handful of cheese on one half of the tortilla, and fold over into a half-moon shape. Cook both sides until tortilla is toasted on both sides and cheese has melted. Repeat with the remaining tortillas.
