I made this exactly as stated, and it was good but INCREDIBLY spicy. It was very hearty - a good warm, autumn meal, and the pork was delicious and fell right apart - but almost so spicy I couldn't enjoy the other flavors. I ate with a side of cottage cheese to counteract the spice. I'm extremely curious to see what this is like without any peppers. I do enjoy mild spice, so next time I will leave the peppers out completely and use red pepper flakes instead, which will allow me to start with a little and add more to taste. The two chipotle peppers in this recipe just seem a little too overpowering! I'm also considering the addition of some fresh apple slices and brown sugar. I do think it was a fun, autumn-y concept, and I will make again, although I will try toning down the spice from super-hot to mildly-hot.
