Poblano vs Pasilla, same thing?

juliejulez | May 5, 2013 05:13 PM

So I've been keeping my eye out for poblano chilis to use for the COTM. At 2 different markets I did not see any labeled poblano, but saw pasillas. The ones labeled pasillas looked like poblanos. Wikipedia said that poblanos are often erroneously called pasillas, but I don't always trust wikipedia.... but I trust the Chowhounders :)

So, are pasillas the same as poblanos?
