You are right. It is a "chicharonn"--with definite quotes around it. NOT a real chicharron as there is no pork in it--on it yes. In it, no. It was soggy anyway.

Looked like the puffy ones they sell hereabouts in Texas. I like the ones that crack your molars. And I could see how a puffy chicharonne with something on top could be soggy. My mistake.

Yes, what IS authentic? Hey-they didn't make their own chicharonnes either, did they? There are also lots of different kinds--and I would NEVER have used that puffy thing I spotted. And how can you expect a mole with like 23 ingredients half of which can only be found in Mexico? The tortillas found at Whole Foods are excellent quality and are made locally. They should have taken the shrimp, seasoned it well and made a pico de gallo out of it. Waste not, want not :-)
