Shiitake Mushroom and Potato Enchiladas

These turned out to be pretty good! I used vegan Monterey Jack cheese,  and the kind I used didn’t melt very well. But it still tasted good! Liam doesn’t like mushrooms, so he picked those out. I really liked the corn and potatoes. The enchiladas kind of fell apart when I was serving them, but that’s okay.

Shiitake Mushroom and Potato Enchiladas

serves 4
time needed: 45 min.


1 ounce dried shiitake mushrooms (about 1 cup)
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 white onion, chopped
1 large russet potato (about 8 ounces), peeled and diced into 1/4-inch pieces
1 cup frozen corn, thawed
kosher salt and black pepper
2 cups grated Monterey Jack (about 8 ounces)
1 14-ounce can green chili enchilada sauce (about 1 1/2 cups)
8 corn tortillas, warmed
fresh cilantro, for serving


Heat oven to 400° F. Combine the mushrooms and 2 cups boiling water in a small bowl and let sit until softened, 20 to 30 minutes. Remove the mushrooms and chop; reserve the soaking liquid.
Meanwhile, heat the oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add the onion and potato and cook, tossing often, until the potato begins to soften, 6 to 8 minutes. Add the corn, mushrooms, 1 cup of the soaking liquid, ½ teaspoon salt, and ¼ teaspoon pepper. Reduce heat to medium and cook, stirring often, until the potatoes are tender and most of the liquid is absorbed, 6 to 8 minutes. Transfer to a large bowl and stir in 1 cup of the Monterey Jack.
Spread ½ cup of the enchilada sauce in the bottom of a 9-by-13-inch baking dish. Dividing evenly, roll up the mushroom mixture in the tortillas and place seam-side down in the dish. Top with the remaining enchilada sauce and sprinkle with the remaining Monterey Jack. Bake until the sauce is bubbling and the Monterey Jack is melted, 12 to 15 minutes. Sprinkle with the cilantro.
