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 enj..." See moreoy 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.

Even without the bit of spice I was hoping for, it still turned out delicious and I will definitely make this again."
