Description 

Highly prized in Mexico and Asia, cuitlacoche is a mushroom-like fungus that lives on corn that makes corn kernels swell to 10 times their normal size. The ancient Aztecs are said to have prized Cuitlacoche long before Europeans arrived in North America. It's smoky-sweet flavor has been characterized as similar to that of white mushrooms, but with the additional sweetness of corn.

Cuitlacoche is used in a variety of traditional Latin American dishes such as soups, sauces, with rice and as a filling for tortillas, but may be used in any preparation where cooked mushrooms would be appropriate.

Recipes

Cuitlacoche Quesadillas
Cuitlacoche, also spelled Huitlacoche, is a parasite that grows on corn, also known as corn smut. But don't let that deter you from trying it. People have been eating it since the time of the Aztecs.

Once cooked, it develops a sweet, savory, woody flavor, thanks to vanillin and glucose. It tastes almost like a cross between corn and mushrooms.

Creamed Cuitlacoche Soup
Cuitlacoche is an epicurean wonder, an exquisite delicacy both nutty and earthy with a hint of fruity sweetness. This rich soup is a wonderfully savory experience when served with crackers or a baguette of crusty bread. Try it with a cheese board and some fresh fruit. While you're at it, pop the cork on something dry and red and see what happens.

Cuitlacoche Rice
Cuitlacoche, also known as Huitlacoche, is a fungus that grows on ears of tender corn, making the kernels eventually swell and darken into a dense inky mass. Not a very appetizing description for a food that is both delicate and complex in flavor and absolutely addictive.

Because of the dark gray-black color of the cuitlacoche, this dish is also known as "black rice" or "arroz Negro". It's actually one of the easiest ways in which to get acquainted with cuitlacoche.
