Lime Glazed Pork Chops

Summer is a great time to grill, and these pork chops are delightful. They have a glaze, so there’s not need to marinate the pork chops. Just whip up the glaze, brush it on the pork chops and grill. The glaze has a little sweet marmalade, lime and spicy jalapeno. It’s a perfect combination. Since you’re already grilling, add some seasoned vegetables in aluminum foil and ears of sweet corn. You’ll have a whole meal ready to serve in no time!

  1. We tried out the Lime Glazed Pork Chops recipe & It was amazing! I expected the jalapeño peppers to make the pork chops super hot but was pleasantly surprised of how mild the glaze was with the marmalade ingredient. I shared this recipe with family members & got rave reviews on how delicious it tastes. 5 stars out of 5!
