Grilled Chipotle Lime Pork Chops

If you're anything like me, I'm always trying to find new ways too cook our favorite proteins. With summer pretty much here, grilling is the way to go! Marinades and dry rubs are our friends, but it is easy to get stuck into a rut.



We all know chipotle and lime go well together, and this is my take on a classic flavor pairing! Bright and full of flavor, with a little heat on the back end, these little guys are perfect for summer. 



Continue reading for the recipe, and let me know if you try them!



-Ingredients-

4 center cut pork loin chops
1/3 c lime juice
2 T vegetable oil
1 clove garlic, pressed or minced
1/2 t cumin
1/2 t oregano
1-2 tsp chipotle peppers in adobo, chopped (use just 1 if you want a mild heat, 2 tsp if you want it kicked up a notch!)
salt and pepper to taste

-Directions-

1. Whisk marinade ingredients all together. Add the chops in a large bag or small glass dish, covered with plastic wrap.
2. Marinate 2-24 hours.
