I have a question about the recipe "Slow-Cooked Pork Tacos" from merrill. It looks absolutely delicious, and I'm making it tonight, but on a mild, medium, hot scale, where is it? My husband won't eat really hot food. Thanks!

Hi! I find that spiciness is really subjective, but it's probably safe to say it's somewhere between medium and hot. If you want it less spicy, I'd reduce both of the chili powder amounts by half, and maybe leave out the serrano or use only half of it. Let me know how it turns out!
Wow, that is customer service at lightning speed. Thank you so much for the suggestions - I'll let you know exactly how wonderful this is in my kitchen!
Merrill, I followed your suggestions for reducing the heat - used half the serrano and omitted the ancho chili powder because I didn't have any anyway. Took it to a final four potluck and heard complete silence while people ate it - the best compliment. Thanks!
