Chipotle Raspberry Pork Chops


Chipotle Raspberry Pork Chips are the epitome of a sweet and spicy dish. I'm not a huge fan of pork chops, but the way these pork chops are prepared is delicious! Not only is it tasty, but it's a fast and simple dish that comes together with a few ingredients. The outcome is the perfect balance of sweet and spicy.

Chipotle Raspberry Pork Chops
Slightly adapated from Taste of Home

·1/2 cup seedless raspberry preserves
·1 TBS chipotle chiles in adobe sauce puree* (see note below)
·Salt to taste
·6 boneless pork chops

In a small saucepan over medium heat, cook raspberry preserves and chipotle puree until heated through, stirring occasionally. Set 1/4 cup aside to use for serving.

Meanwhile, heat a grill or a grill pan on the stovetop to medium heat.

Sprinkle the pork chops with salt then brush with remaining chipotle-raspberry sauce. Cook the pork chops on the grill for 4-5 minutes on each side, or until cooked through.

Let stand for 5 minutes before serving. Serve with reserved chipotle-raspberry sauce on top.

*Note: For the chipotle chiles in adobo sauce puree, you need to buy a small can of chipotle chiles in adobo sauce from the grocery store (it's usually found in the Hispanic foods section). In the can is whole chipotle chiles in adobo sauce. Seed the chipotle chiles and then puree the entire can of adobe sauce and chipotle chile together. Use the amount need for the recipe, then freeze the rest in a marked plastic bag. Next time a recipe calls for chipotle chiles in adobo sauce, all you have to do is break off a piece from the bag in the freezer.
