Chipotle-Lime Marinated Grilled Pork Chops


  • 4 porterhouse (bone-in loin) pork chops about 1-1/4 inch thick
  • 1 chipotle chile in adobo sauce chopped OR 1 dried chipolte chile, rehydrated* and minced **
  • 2 teaspoons oregano
  • 2 cloves garlic crushed
  • 1/4 cup vegetable oil
  • 2/3 cup lime juice
  • 1 tablespoon cilantro chopped
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt

Cooking Directions

Place chops in a large self-sealing plastic bag; combine remaining ingredients in a small bowl and pour over chops. Seal bag and refrigerate for 4-24 hours.

Remove chops from marinade (discarding marinade) and grill over medium-hot coals for a total of 12-16 minutes, until internal temperature on a thermometer reads 145 degrees Fahrenheit, followed by a 3-minute rest time.

Serves 4

* To rehydrate, cover chile with hot water for 10 minutes, let stand at room temperature. Drain and use as directed. Seed chile, if desired, to reduce piquancy a bit.

** Always wear rubber gloves when handling hot chiles.
