Take your pork chops to a whole new level with this spicy and flavorful chipotle adobo sauce. I've been known to make a few extra chops just so I have leftovers for tacos later in the week when are nights are busier than usual and there just isn't as much time to cook. And besides, who doesn't love tacos?

 4 boneless pork chops3/4 inch thickness
 ½ tsp Celtic sea salt
 1 tsp fresh cracked black pepper
 1 ½ tbsp canola oil

1

Combine 2 chipotle peppers, chipotle sauce, garlic, onion, lime juice, lime zest in a blender. Puree until smooth.

NOTES: You can also marinate the pork chops with the pureed adobo sauce in a Ziploc bag in your fridge for up to 24 hours in advance. The flavors will deepen and the pork will become tender. This sauce also works well with chicken or fish. This pork is perfect for leftovers as tacos!
