New sauces and dressings are always exciting to introduce around the family dinner table. These Chipotle-Raspberry Pork Chops are a deliciously spicy twist on a traditional meal. The recipe is surprisingly quick and simple, which saves you lots of preparation time and gets you back spending time with your loved ones rather than making meals.

To start, we created our Chipotle-Raspberry sauce. We began by finely slicing the chipotle pepper and adding the small slices to ½ cup of the raspberry preserve. The recipe calls for only one pepper, and that was the perfect amount of spice for our taste buds. However, if you are an extreme spice lover, feel free to add a second pepper along with the ½ cup raspberry preserve. In a saucepan, cook the mixture over a medium temperature until it is heated up. While the sauce is heating, sprinkle your pork chops with salt and then brush ¼ of the warm sauce over your pork chops.

Grill your pork chops until they are cooked through and serve with the remainder of your Chipotle-Raspberry sauce. We decided to serve this dish with a mixture of lettuce greens along with an Asian toasted sesame dressing. The contrasting dressing flavor complimented the Chipotle-Raspberry taste wonderfully.

We honestly cannot believe how simple this recipe was. It is the perfect way to mix up your grilling routine and add a little zest into your meal for some end-of-summer fun!

 

Happy grilling!
