On the fly...Pulled Pork stuffed Chilacas

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
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".

Unless you just can't stand *any* heat, you could probably get along with those peppers. They aren't very hot really (as Rich said, they are only a little bit hotter than the pretty mild Anaheim pepper). His reference to "more intense" wasn't in regard to heat but flavor (big difference).

You could always substitute a poblano for the chilaca. Not nearly as much heat as the chilaca, it is often used for chiles rellenos in places where people don't want the heat. Not much hotter than a bell pepper, to be honest.

Very good post and observation. I like the chilaca for it's size and deeper color. I often use it as a kicked up bell pepper. Thanks my friend.
