Cannibal Pasilla Peppers



Ok ok ok, I am sorry for making you guys wait so long for me to post this recipe, my sincere apologies for teasing you with the awesome photo.  Which I believe was completely by chance.  I must tell you, it’s hilarious how many people think when they see these photos that I know what I am doing, if you only saw the behind the scenes DISASTER.  Most of the time it looks like Hurricane Irene purposely headed straight to my living room and stayed there for 15 minutes before there was nothing left to destroy.  But yea, so for anyone who thinks these photos come easy, your absolutely crazy.

Hmmmm what a weekend it has been too.  It was my brothers 23rd Birthday so it forced my ass out of the house and off the computer to drive up to Hollywood to see him.  Thank god I did, it was a great trip and got to meet some AWESOME people.  First on the hook was the incredible shrinking Tim from Big Tim’s Primal Journey who makes me look like Froto.  And if you could have seen my car on the way to see him, OMG.  If I ever got pulled over, I would have gotten arrested for having my trunk look like a scene out of dexter.  I had a freshly butchered whole lamb on ice in a cooler for Tim and it did not look good, especially with the small drops of blood on my bumper, oops.  But you know what, that was PALEO as F@#K.  Only way it would have been better is if I was Fred Flinstoning my car up there, but that would have been a crappy 88 miles in traffic haha.  But anyways, Tim is the man, and you should all go tell him.  Plus I think he has been waiting for me to post this recipe for weeks, sorry buddy here you go.

Serves: 2
Shredded Chicken
Pepper Stuffing
  • 3 pasilla peppers
  • 1 shallot, diced
  • 1 serrano chile pepper
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 lime
  • 2 tbsp cilantro
  • 1 tbsp balsamic vinegar
  • lime avocado oil
  • ½ tsp sea salt
  • ½ tsp ground coriander
  • ½ tsp ground cumin

Shredded Chicken
  1. Combine the chicken, lime juice, and salt in a medium saucepan.
  2. Add in enough chicken broth to almost completely submerge all the chicken
  3. Simmer over medium low heat until 90% of the chicken broth has evaporated, this should take 25-35 minutes
  4. Let your chicken cool. Using your hands or a blender or any other inventive means you have shred your chicken and set aside
Pepper Stuffing
  1. Set your oven broiler on high and line a baking sheet with aluminum foil
  2. Place your pasilla peppers and your serrano pepper on the baking sheet and place under the broiler
  3. You want to roast your peppers until the skin is charred on all sides turning the pasilla peppers probably every 5-7 minutes and the serrano every 3-4 minutes
  4. Keep a close eye so you don't turn your peppers into mush, remove from the oven and place in a bowl covered with plastic wrap to cool for 15 minutes
  5. Once cool, you need to peel the skin off of your peppers using your hands. Set 2 Pasilla peppers aside and dice the other Pasilla and the 1 serrano
  6. Heat a saute pan over medium heat and saute the shallots, garlic, and peppers in lime avocado oil or any oil of your choice
  7. Once the shallots are cooked, add in your shredded chicken, cilantro, and all your spices and mix well in the pan
  8. Once everything is mixed well, add in juice of half of a lime and the balsamic vinegar ensuring you scrap all the food off the bottom of the pan to mix in
  9. Remove from heat and season to taste with salt and pepper
  10. Take your 2 Pasilla peppers that are about to be stuffed with their brother and make a slit down the middle, remove the seeds and plate
  11. Spoon his/her lunch into the cavity of the Pasilla peppers and use your remaining half of 1 lime to sprinkle lime juice over
  12. Garnish and enjoy

  1. Yum! This was delicious. I love pasilla peppers but don’t have many recipes for them, and I am always looking for a way to use leftover chicken from making bone broth. Thanks for this great meal! (I can’t wait to eat my leftovers!)

  2. My peppers are mushy even after all the skins are charred. Any clue on how to reduce the mushiness? everything else is wonderful taste wise. I did use 4 serrano peppers with seeds though

    1. you can try charring the peppers on an open flame of a gas stove or BBQ also, usually will soften the pepper without cooking it too much because of the higher temp :]

  3. This looks yummy… what if make the shredded chicken mix…. cut the top off the pepper and stuff it then bake the pepper… or stuff it like you have then bake it? something about cooking it inside the pepper makes me happy.

  4. Looks and sounds fantastic! Every recipe of yours I have made has been awesome! Thanks for sharing, can't wait to make it.
