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?
Combine 2 chipotle peppers, chipotle sauce, garlic, onion, lime juice, lime zest in a blender. Puree until smooth.
Season pork chops with salt and pepper and rub with pureed chipotle adobo sauce on both sides.
Add canola oil to a frying pan (or grill) over medium-high heat. Cook pork about 3 minutes on each side.
Serve with a side of your favorite pico de gallo or salsa!
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!
