Pork Chops with Chipotle Tomatoes

This smokey-chipotle sensation is a twist on the ordinary

Servings: 1

Ingredients:
6 boneless center-cut pork chops (about 6 ounces each)
Salt and ground black pepper, to taste
1 tablespoon vegetable oil
1 garlic clove, minced
1 can (14 1/2 ounces) fire-roasted dice tomatoes
1/2 or 1 canned chipotle pepper en adobo, finely chopped (depending on heat preference)
1 cup canned corn kernels, drained
1 cup canned black beans, drained
Juice of 1/2 lime
2 tablespoons chopped cilantro

Preparation Time: Approximately 10 minutes

Cook Time: Approximately 20 minutes

Cooking Directions
Season the pork chops with salt and pepper. Heat the oil in a large, heavy skillet over medium-high heat. Brown the chops on both sides, about 3 minutes per side. Remove to a plate and set aside. If you can not fit all of the chops in the skillet without crowding brown in batches.

Add garlic, tomatoes, chipotle, corn and beans; bring to a boil, stirring once or twice. Return pork to sauce and turn to coat, cover and simmer over medium heat until chops are cooked through, about 8 minutes.

Remove chops to a serving platter. Bring the juices in the pan to a boil over medium-high heat. Add lime juice and cilantro and simmer until lightly thickened, about 3 minutes. Spoon over pork chops and serve.
