Grilled Mexican Pork Chops
Do you grill year round? My family loves to grill and despite weather, we do grill all year! If the weather is crazy we do use a grill pan! These mouthwatering Mexican Pork Chops are a must in your weekly rotation!
Topping the chops with a tomatillo salsa is the perfect combo. I usually grill my tomatillos and use my Tomatillo Salsa recipe.
If you are crunched for time use a store bought salsa verde. The pork chops are the most important part of your meal. Using a shortcut salsa is a great time saver.
