Amigos I have a super treat for you today, Stuffed Conchas!

This decadent dessert is like a fusion of Mexican pan dulce and American strawberry shortcake. It’s super easy to put together and guaranteed to make you oh so very happy.

Here in Campeche, where I live, stuffed conchas have recently become popular. Across other states of the country they have been around for a while. It really is no surprise how popular they’ve become.

Conchas Rellenas

In Mexico you may see these simply called conchas rellenas.

They, of course, are not how the traditional concha is served. But it sure is a fun way to eat them.

Nutella Stuffed Conchas

For the Nutella lovers there’s also a version that has Nutella and sliced strawberries — they are also delicious!

You would use a vanilla flavored concha, Nutellas and fresh sliced strawberries. It’s as simple as those 3 ingredients.

Stuffed Conchas Variations

There are so many delicious variations to this finger-licking Mexican dessert.

Below are other types of stuffed conchas, some are rather strange combinations but have become quite popular.

  • Similar to the one in my recipe, mascarpone is also used.
  • Nata is another variation.
  • Concha rellena con frijoles: Yup refried beans stuffed in a concha. Sometimes cheese or chorizo or longaniza can also be added.
  • Conchas rellenas con chilaquiles: Sweet, spicy, soft and a little crunchy.
  • I’ve also seen conchas stuffed with cold cuts and cheese.

As you can see, it only takes a little imagination to create a unique variation!

Stuffed Conchas with Whipped Cream and Strawberries

As I mentioned these stuffed conchas are simply called conchas rellenas. But when I saw them they reminded me of one of my favorite American desserts, strawberry shortcake. So I of course needed to make them at home.

To me they’re like a fusion of my two cultures, Mexican and American.

This dessert is pure deliciousness, guaranteed to make everyone happy!

  • Arrange the strawberry slices on top of the whipped cream or Nutella.
  • Place the top half of the concha and give a gentle push down to bring the two halves together.
  • Serve immediately and enjoy!

What Does Concha Strawberry Shortcake Taste Like

Amigos, I have to tell you that I really love this treat.

The concha is sweet, but not overly so, which makes it one of my favorite pan dulces. Combined with the creamy fluffiness of the whipped cream and the sweet-tart strawberries, makes this a perfect dessert in my book!

I really hope you give it a try. If you do make sure to tag me on social media as @MexicanMadeMeatless

      This is a perfect last minute dessert. If you have kids another variation would be to add a scoop of vanilla ice cream instead of or with the whipped cream and strawberries. Enjoy!
