Habanero is a very hot chile, the hottest.  It also has a fruity
flavor.  You could substitute two serrano or jalepeno chiles.  The
fruitiness of the habanero is mostly lost in this complex dish, so add
chiles to meet your personal preference for heat.  Chiles can be
omitted for a mild dish or even doubled for hotheads.
