Spicy Chipotle Pork Chops

Hi Everyone! Today’s recipe is a Tex-Mex inspired dish. Easy, delicious and spicy, perfect to entertain friends and family. I hope you give it a try.

  • 4-8 Pork Loin Chops

Ingredients for the marinade:
  • 4 Chipotle peppers in adobo
  • 2 T Adobo Sauce from the Chipotles
  • 1 T Mustard
  • 2 T Honey
  • 1 T Minced Garlic
  • Salt to taste
  • Black Pepper to taste

Make the Marinade:
In a food processor we are going to mix all the ingredients for the marinade:
Remember you can control the spiciness of this dish by adding less or more chipotle peppers to taste.  So in a food processor mix the chipotle peppers with the adobo sauce, the mustard, honey, garlic and oil, season this with salt and pepper to taste, mix until you get a paste consistency.

Taste the flavor add more salt if needed.

Season the pork chops with this sauce, and marinate them in the refrigerator for at least one hour! Remember the longer you marinate them, the more delicious they will be, so if you have more time, marinate them for more time.

To cook them:
You can Grill them  or Pan-fry them.   Depending on the size of the pork chops they will cook in about 2-4 minutes per side.

Mine are kind of thick so I will pan fry them for about 3 minutes on each side. Once they are done, serve them with mashed potatoes or your favorite side dish.  They go great with a Pasta salad.
