Chipotle-Lime Pork Chops

Tonight for dinner we made chipotle-lime pork chops using half this recipe for marinade.

This marinade was really simple and the pork chops ended up being so, so yummy.

Chipotle-Lime Pork Chops
1 lime, zest and juice
About 1/8 cup olive oil
1/2 tbsp chipotle chili pepper
1/2 tbsp salt
1/2 tbsp garlic powder
About 1 1/2 lbs meat of your choice

Step 1: Zest the lime. There is a lot of concentration of flavor in the peel, so make sure you don't skip this step! I don't have a zester, so I just used this nifty little thing that also doubles as a juicer:

Then juice the lime. If you roll it around like so before juicing, it will be a little juicier:

Juice the lime:

I'm not really sure what chipotle chili pepper is, but I used this:

Measure out the olive oil then add the chipotle, salt, and garlic powder:

This would be better with real garlic, but alas, I was too lazy and in a hurry. Pour the marinade over the meat and refrigerate for a few hours:

When you're ready to cook them, grill them for about 10 mins on each side or until they are done. Eat and enjoy all the deliciousness!
