Wild Mushroom Enchiladas


  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 5 tablespoons ancho Chile puree
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 teaspoons fresh lime juice
  • Kosher salt to taste
  • 1 tablespoon unsalted butter
  • ½ medium Red Onion, diced
  • 6 ounces wild mushrooms (mixture of morels, shiitakes, oysters and portabellas, sliced)
  • ½ avocado, peeled, pitted, and cut into ¼-inch dice
  • 3 ounces queso fresco or feta cheese, crumbled
  • 1 tablespoon chopped cilantro
  • 1 tomato, blanched, peeled, seeded, and diced
  • 6 corn Tortillas


In a skillet, bring the cream, ancho Chile puree, and garlic to a boil, and simmer for 2 minutes. Transfer to a blender and puree.

Add the lime juice, and season with salt. Strain the puree into a bowl and set aside

Heat butter in a large skillet and sauté onion and mushrooms for 2 minutes over medium heat, until onion is translucent and mushrooms are soft.

Add avocado, cheese, cilantro, and tomato, just heat through. Add 2 tablespoons of reserved cream puree and stir gently. Add salt to taste and simmer 3 minutes.

Heat the remaining reserved cream puree in a skillet until simmering. Place the tortillas one at a time into the puree for 15 seconds to soften, and place on a sheet pan while filling.

Divide the mixture in the skillet among the tortillas, spreading evenly down the middle. Roll up the tortillas with a metal spatula place seam side down on serving plates.

If not serving immediately, cover enchiladas on sheet pan with foil, and reheat at 350° degrees for 10 minutes.
