MUSHROOM HUITLACOCHE
1/4 cup olive oil
4 tbsps butter
4 cups shiitake mushrooms, stems removed and sliced
4 cups cremini mushrooms, stems removed and sliced
1 cup huitlacoche, frozen is best but canned can be used instead
2 cups yellow onions, diced
2 tbsps garlic, chopped
1 tbsp chile de arbol, coarsely ground
SERRANO CHILE SALSA

Instructions
SERRANO CHILE SALSA
PLACE all salsa ingredients - except the cilantro - into a large sauce pot, add water to cover and bring to a simmer.
COOK the ingredients until soft, about 8 to 10 minutes. Let cool.
REMOVE all ingredients, using a slotted spoon, to the pitcher of an electric blender, add cilantro and puree until smooth. Add a small amount of the cooking liquid to adjust the consistency. Reserve.
MUSHROOM HUITLACOCHE
HEAT a large cast iron skillet or sauté pan over medium high heat cook mushrooms in batches using a tablespoon of olive and butter for each batch. Cook mushrooms until lightly browned and remove from pan and reserve.
ADD remaining oil and butter to the skillet and sauté onions until lightly browned, add garlic and chile, continue to sauté for 3 more minutes stirring frequently. Add the mushrooms back to the mixture, fold in huitlacoche and season to taste with kosher salt. Reserve.
TO FINISH

HEAT each tortilla on both sides then place 2 ounces of mushroom mix in the center of each tortilla, drizzle with Serrano salsa, crumble queso fresco over the top and finish with a small amount of epazote or cilantro. Enjoy.
