  • 2 Tbs vegetable or olive oil
  • 1 Lb Huitlacoche rinsed and cut into bite size pieces.
  • ¼ medium size white onion medium size
  • 2 small garlic cloves.
  • 4 epazote leaves
  • Salt to taste
  • 8 Corn Tortillas homemade if possible.


  • In a medium frying pan, heat the oil over medium heat. Separately, finely chop the onion and garlic.
  • Add the onion to the pan and lightly sauté for 2 minutes, or until the onion becomes transparent. Add the garlic and continue cooking for one minute.
  • Next, add the Huitlacoche and epazote to the frying pan. As you continue to cook, the Huitlacoche will release a bit of liquid, so stir lightly. Continue sautéing for about 5 more minutes, after which the ingredients will be done. Do not overcook them, otherwise they will become dry.
  • Place a portion of about 2 tablespoons of the sautéed ingredients in each tortilla, and serve the tacos alongside a good raw serrano salsa.
