Can I adjust the spice level in the recipe?

Yes, you can adjust the spice level in this recipe to your preference. If you prefer less spiciness, there are a couple of things you can do to reduce it.

First, you can rinse your chipotles so they are free of the hot adobo sauce and remove some of the seeds which also add spice.

You can also reduce the amount of chipotles in the adobo sauce used in the recipe or omit them entirely, although that will also change the flavor to some degree.

On the other hand, if you like your Tacos Al Pastor spicier, you can increase the amount of chipotles in adobo by ½ or 1 can or add 2-3 tablespoons of hot sauce to the sauce mix. You can also add some crushed red pepper, cayenne pepper, or chili powder to the seasoning mix for added flavor. You can also decrease the amount of pineapple added, which will lower the sweetness level and allow the spice to go higher. Keep in mind that the recipe as written has a medium level of spice, so adjust according to your taste.
