Corn Truffle (Huitlacoche) Quesadillas
Huitlacoche (pronounced wee-tlah-KOH-cheh) is a delicious corn fungus packed with nutrients and antioxidants. Known also as the Mexican truffle, it has been considered a delicacy in Mexico for thousands of years and its popularity is rapidly growing in the US and Europe. Enjoy it in these crispy quesadillas.
Huitlacoche can be found canned, but fresh huitlacoche is so much better. You can find it in summer farmers' markets, Mexican markets that carry fresh produce, and on the internet.
You may find it spelled "cuitlacoche."
