Chipotle Glazed Pork Chops

This is spicy way to cook pork chops in less than fifteen minutes. You’ll love the way the smoky flavor of the adobo sauce combines with honey and balsamic to make a delicious glaze.  I used the leftover sauce for the next few days as a marinade for shrimp and a spicy dipping sauce. Whip up some delicious Crock Pot Carnitas with the remaining chipotle peppers.

 We ate the pork chops with buttery garlic mashed potatoes(similar just with cauliflower) and roasted broccoli.  DSC_0125
