Cooking time:   30 minutes for menu      Cooking schedule: see below for instructions

     I try to make good use of leftovers in the summer, as well as winter - usually leftover potato or pasta salads. 

Grilled Chili Chops

Total time: 30 minutes
      Do 2 boneless chops or 3, thinner, bone-in chops.  It all depends on availability and your appetite.  The marinade adds a zesty flavor to the pork and helps keep them tender as they cook.  Remember, slightly pink is okay, too done dries them out, and makes them rather tough.
