Mojo Grilled Pork Chops

 Mojo Grilled Pork Chops with Black beans and rice and an icy cold Mojito
Possibly the best Cuban dish ever. Definitely my favorite way to cook pork.

1 boneless porkloin or loin roast - sliced into chops

For the marinade:
juice from 1 orange
juice from 1 lime
2 chipotle peppers in adobo sauce or 1 ripe hot pepper chopped
1Tbl. minced garlic
1Tbl. honey
1Tbl. oil
1Tbl. minced onion
1/2tsp. salt
1/2tsp. oregano
a pinch of ground cumin
a gallon storage bag

Place the marinade ingredients in a blender and process about 1 minute.
Add the chops and marinade to the storage bag, remove the air and refrigerate overnight.
Grill until cooked through.

You can find chipotles in adobo sauce in the Mexican section of your grocer.

Blend Marinade ingredients for about 1 minute. This can also be heated and thickened with cornstarch to use as a serving sauce for other dishes. Marinate overnight.

                                          Grill until cooked through.
