Cook over medium-high heat until mixture is thickened and bubbly; cook and stir 1 minute more. Slice pork and serve with apple mixture and thickened sauce.

Footnotes

  • *Because hot chile peppers, such as chipotles, contain volatile oils that can burn your skin and eyes, avoid direct contact with chiles as much as possible. When working with chile peppers, wear plastic or rubber gloves. If your bare hands do touch the chile peppers, wash your hands well with soap and water.

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...

I cooked this tonight and it was a big hit with the family. Instead of the canned apple pie filling, I used three large fresh fuji apples, sliced and coated with a bit of cinnamon and raw sugar....

Very good! For those who do not like food very spicy just cut open the chipotle peppers and take the seeds out with a knife. This will cut down on the heat a lot.
