Quesadillas with Huitlacoche con Queso
- 2 cups fresh huitlacoche
- 2 tablespoons cooking oil
- 1/2 cup diced onions
- 2 cups finely ground masa harina
- 1 1/4 cup cold water
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 2 cups queso blanco
Cut huitlacoche off corncob and dice. Heat a medium saute pan with oil, add onions cook until soft. Add huitlacoche saute until tender, about 5 minutes.
In a medium bowl combine the masa harina, water, and salt and stir until smooth.
The dough should be slightly sticky and form a ball when pressed together. To test, flatten a small ball of dough between your palms. If the edges crack, add water, a tablespoon at a time until a test piece does not crack.
Place a small ball of dough between two pieces of waxed paper and press or roll into a small tortilla.
