Mole emergency

Hi everyone!
My office is having a "chocolate-theme" potluck next week, and I thought it would be fun to have roasted pork mole enchiladas. Do you think pork belly would be best for this task? Or should I try for the 'fall-apart tender' shoulder variety?

Please help!

  1. My choice would be to use shoulder for this. IMO pork belly is best savored on its own, and may be too fatty for tamales. But that's just my intuition; I'd be curious to hear other opinions.

      I agree. Shoulder is a better choice for enchiladas.
