With warm weather comes an increase in barbecue consumption, though if I'm being honest, I'm even more of a fan of Mexican chorizo than I am of pulled pork. But why choose between the two? Instead, bring them together by braising pork shoulder with chorizo spices, then shredding it like pulled pork. The crowning glory: a coleslaw made with corn, mayo, and cotija cheese, just like elote, the Mexican street corn.
I made this on a whim one Sunday morning when friends called and said they planned to drop by in the afternoon. It makes a lot, and I was able to serve our friends and the neighbors a casual supper. The seasonings and green chilies give the meat a spicy kick and taste fantastic with cool sour cream and fresh salsa.
