Sometimes I'm not too sure about the chipotle peppers in adobo sauce, they have a bit of a too smoky taste for me, but I thought that I would give them another go in this recipe. The orange juice and maple syrup definitely helped to cut the too smoky taste and they were fabulous! Easy to put together and the kids love anything that has a "dipping" sauce to it!
Chipotle Orange Pork Chops
(recipe found in Simple and Delicious)
1/2 cup maple syrup
1/2 cup thawed orange juice concentrate
3 tablespoons chopped chipotle peppers in adobo sauce
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon pepper
8 bone in pork loin chops
Mix the first five ingredients in a small bowl. Set aside 1/3 cup for serving. Grill pork chops, covered, over medium heat or broil 4" from the heat for 6-8 minutes on each side or until a meat thermometer reads 160, basting frequently with orange mixture. Serve with reserved sauce.
