Double or triple the amounts and freeze to use in recipes, adjust the chili flakes to suit heat level, my family likes extreme heat so I use 1 tablespoon, I have made this in the past using pork shoulder and also pork butt --- plan ahead the mixture needs to chill for at least 8 hours or up to 24 hours to blend the flavors together.
