You coming to Potrero in a couple weeks?

I'll make you some. Just have to go visit the local Mexican grocer. 
I've never found it fresh, but the canned is good anyway.

The huitlacoche tamales with green mole I made for Tanwayour 
Anniversary's New World feast a couple of years ago were a big hit. 
Almost everyone was skeptical about this odd, grayish mushroom 
substance but I had a lot of people asking for more after they had tried it.
