Adrian Leon’s Huitlacoche (Mexican Mushrooms) Quesadilla


Huitlacoche is a Mexican delicacy and Chef Adrian Leon combines it with field and shitake mushrooms, onions, garlic and corn to create a smoky-sweet filling for freshly made tortillas.

What You Need

  • 1 cup SPLENDA® No Calorie Sweetener, Granulated
  • 1/2 pound mushrooms (field and shitake)
  • 1 (7 ounce) can huitlacoche
  • 1 medium white onion, finely chopped
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon margarine
  • 1 tablespoon finely chopped garlic
  • 1 cup fresh corn kernels
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon pepper
  • 3 tablespoons fresh parsley
  • 3 tablespoons fresh cilantro
  • 1 (12 ounce) container cottage cheese
  • 3 cups masa-harina for tortillas
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 3/4 cups warm water


  1. For the filling: Cook the onion with the oil and butter for 5 minutes in an 8 inch cast-iron frying pan over medium heat. Add garlic and cook for 3 minutes. Add mushrooms and huitlacoche and continue cooking for 7 minutes. Add SPLENDA® Granulated Sweetener and corn and cook for another 10 minutes.
  2. Stir in salt, pepper, cilantro and parsley and set aside.
  3. For the masa: Pre-heat a 10 inch comal (griddle or cast-iron frying pan) over medium heat.
  4. Mix masa-harina with salt and 1 3/4 cups of warm water to make soft but not dry dough. Divide the dough into 20 balls; shape each ball into a 5 inch long by 1 1/2 inches wide log.
  5. Place a log between two sheets of plastic, put it in a tortilla press and press down. If you do not have a tortilla press, press with your hand and create an oval shape, turn it and press on the other side.
  6. Remove the plastic and place over the pre-heated griddle. Cook for 2 to 3 minutes on each side or until it starts to brown and removes easily form the griddle without braking.
  7. Top each tortilla with the filling and cheese, fold and serve.
