From Vegetarian Gourmet 1993, Don Matesz. This a vegetarian tamale made with tofu, onion, bell pepper, soy sauce and mustard.
Huitlacoche (also spelled cuitlacoche) is a fungus which grows naturally on ears of corn (Ustilago maydis). The fungus is harvested and treated as a delicacy. The earthy and somewhat smoky fungus is used to flavor quesadillas, tamales, soups and other specialty dishes.
