No, the spices and especially the lemon juice and tequila solve this. And marinating it for at least 24 hours will help, too. But remember- you have to use Pork Butt- not shoulder or something else. More for the texture than the taste. The mix of the textures of the pork butt and the rice is key. I also wouldn't recommend substituting the habaneros. It will change the taste. If your hot-averse, just remove all the evins and seeds. Wrap it in banana leaves first and then wrap the outer with foil tightly so steam can't escape.
