When one lady came to pickup her smoked picnic shoulder, she offered me a small portion. Well, I scrambled and found some fresh chilaca and sliced them in half. A Chilaca is a fresh chile, once it is dried and or smoked it is known as Pasilla. I filled the chilaca halves with the pulled pork and topped with cheddar cheese. I like to use chilaca because it has just a bit more heat than an anaheim, and the flavor is more intense. Because of their size, they are primarily used for chile rellenos, the rest are usually dried into pasilla. The chile in the middle is a whole chilaca for reference. Not much of a deal, it was an on the spot dish that I will pursue and enhance in the future. Original details are on a thread called "2 picnic shoulders for two ladies".
