If buying a bone-in leg portion of pork (also referred to as fresh ham), ask your butcher to remove the bone and butterfly it.
Sour prickly cactus pears (xoconostles) are a perfect substitute for the chayote. Simply cut off both ends of 5 cactus leaves before removing the peel. Cut cactus in half, then remove the seeds before chopping the cactus; cook with the onions and garlic 5 min. before continuing as directed.

Delicious recipe. The only thing I would like to comment on is my surprise at the heat in the guajillo peppers. They are rated at about 2500 on the Scoville scale but I would put them on a par with jalapenos and suggest removing the seeds and membranes- I will try that the next time- to let the delicious flavor of these peppers shine through. I didn't have chayote let alone prickly pear on hand so used Jerusalem artichoke in place. I'm sure it gave a different flavor but it was delicious with the bacon in the filling.
