Apple Chipotle Pork Chops

I've been looking for ways to use the Country Bob's sauces I won in the Women of the Grill contest (don't forget to enter this years contest here) and decided to do something REALLY simple.  I always think pork and apples go really good together, so when I had a craving for pork the other day, I immediately went to find the Apple Chipotle Sauce that came in my winnings. Cause not only do apples go well with pork, but so do chipotles!  This marinade is way simple and I even made a bit extra so that I could have a little sauce for dipping.  The flavors were sweet and spicy and delicious.  Not over powering on any one flavor....just perfect!

Apple Chipotle Pork Chops
Printable Recipe 
3 bone-in pork loin chops (it came that way, otherwise I would have used 4)
1/4 cup Country Bob's Apple Chipotle All Purpose Sauce
1 Tablespoon Mayonnaise
1 clove garlic, finely minced
ground chipotle pepper (optional - can use cayenne)
kosher salt

In a small bowl, combine the Apple Chipotle sauce, mayo, and garlic; mix until smooth.  Season the pork on both sides with the chipotle pepper and salt.  Place the pork in a resealable bag and pour the sauce over, seal the bag and rub the meat to make sure the sauce covers all sides.  Let marinate in the refrigerator for 4 hours.

Preheat grill to 375 degrees.  Oil the grill grates.  Remove the pork chops from the bag and discard the marinade.  Place the pork directly over the heat and grill 5-6 minutes per side or until the pork is full cooked (145 degrees F).  Carefully remove from grill and enjoy!

Apple and chipotle are perfectly matched with pork so I bet this dinner kicked arse.
