Instructions Checklist
  • Place chops in a resealable plastic bag set in a shallow dish. For marinade, in a small bowl, stir together lime juice, chili powder, oil, garlic, cumin, cinnamon, hot pepper sauce, and salt; pour over chops. Seal bag; turn to coat chops. Marinate in the refrigerator for 4 to 24 hours, turning bag occasionally. Drain chops, discarding marinade.

  • Place chops on the rack of an uncovered grill directly over medium coals. Grill for 11 to 14 minutes or until pork juices run clear (160 degrees F), turning once. If desired, garnish with mango and/or chile peppers.

Spicy this wasn't. I even added a pinch of cayenne to boost the spiciness Maybe 1/4 tsp. But by my standards it wasn't spicy at all. It was very tasty and my wife liked it too. I will make this again but I will add more Cayenne next time. I used Crystal Hot Sauce maybe Tabasco would have added more heat. Read More
