Miss Connie... I heard one time the stuff in its fresh state is quite pricey!! I figured I've thrown away a couple of million bucks worth by now!

OK folks, we went to lunch yesterday at a really nice restaurant in Puerto Vallarta (River Cafe on the Isla Cuale if you are ever here - good good good). Here is what I ordered (sorry I took a bite before I thought to take a photo). Tres quesadillas, one with huitacoche (left), one with squash blossom flowers (center) and one with poblano strips (right). Yummy.

Saludos, Karen
