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.
