Chipotle Pork Chops

In case you haven't noticed, I kind of love pork chops! This has to be my third or fourth pork chop recipe in just the past couple of weeks. What can I say? I'm obsessed!

Now this recipe is different than the others (and I know I say that about them all). It's got a kick to it (not too bad, don't worry) and the flavors blend together perfectly! From the rub, to the sauce, to the lime juice you can put on top, they seriously kick some butt in the best possible way!

Herb Crusted Pork Chops

Tired of normal pork chops? So was I, until I found this super easy and flavorful recipe that takes a different spin on the classic that is pork chops! As I've mentioned before, my oldest daughter recently stopped eating beef, so it's been harder than one would think to make dinners at night. I can only eat so much grilled chicken!

So what makes this pork chop recipe so different? To be honest, I'm not sure! I use all the ingredients often, but mixing them together was awesome! Step aside normal pork chops! Your better-dressed pork chop counterpart is here to save the day!

Set that aside and put the olive oil in a pan on the stove over medium to high heat. Take each pork chop individually and slather in the herb mixture, then place on the stove and cook for about five minutes per side! That's it! Super easy for busy nights or tiresome days where you don't feel like spending an hour in the kitchen!
