I love this recipe! Sometimes I put the extra chipotle in the freezer for the next time I make it!

The flavor was fantastic! It's a little fatty because of cooking the pork shoulder and then reserving the dripping as a soup, but you can skim that off after a day in the fridge. I added a little extra chipotle for some more spice.
