Chipotle-Honey Pork Chops

I was a latecomer to the canned chipotle peppers in adobo party.  Up until a few weeks ago, I had never used them before.  I made these recently but it was with the leftovers from this dish that I’m blogging about today.  And now, I’ll never turn back.

I was waiting for Frank’s reaction after taking his first bite, since he isn’t a fan of much heat.  He did pause for a second, but ended up surviving.  And really liking it.

And yeah, those are grits.  Straight from Tennessee!  Recipe to come tomorrow.

Chipotle-Honey Pork Chops

4 boneless pork chops

Preheat oven to 450 degrees.  Place oven rack in middle of oven.

Puree chipotles in adobo, garlic and honey in a blender or food processor until smooth.  Pat pork dry and season with salt.

Line a baking sheet with foil and place pork on top.  Coat each chop generously with glaze.  Roast for about 20 minutes.  Serve.

    I LOVE the chipotle honey combo! I’ve used it on salmon and sweet potatoes before and loved it both times!
