  • *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'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.


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. I removed the seeds from the peppers to tone it down a bit so it wouldn't be too hot for my 2 year old, but I think I will leave them next time because it wasn't spicy at all. Even without the bit of spice I was hoping for, it still turned out delicious and I will definitely make this again.


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.
