1/2 cup chanterelle mushrooms 

1/2 cup sliced shiitake mushrooms 

4 cloves garlic, minced 

1 tablespoon chopped fresh thyme 

1 teaspoon ground chile de arbol or 1 fresh chile de arbol, cut into rounds

3/4 cup dry white wine 

2 cups grated Monterey Jack cheese 

2 cups grated Oaxaca cheese or mozzarella

Directions

Special equipment:

  1. Heat the olive oil in a medium skillet over medium-high heat. Add the onions and cook until translucent, about 3 minutes. Add the chanterelles, shiitakes and garlic and cook on medium heat until the mushrooms are fully cooked, about 5 minutes. Add the thyme and chile de arbol and mix well until evenly incorporated. Season with salt and pepper. Remove the mushrooms to a plate.
  2. To the same skillet, add the white wine and bring to a simmer. Toss the Monterey Jack and Oaxaca cheese with the cornstarch until well coated. Slowly stir the cheese into the skillet and continue to gently stir until melted and smooth.
