Recipe Name: Spicy Grilled Pork Chops with Mango Pineapple Salsa
Recipe Information:

This is a simple dish with all sorts of summer feel to it.  The
pineapple and mango not only compliment the pork with the flavor, but it’s also
brings a slight coolness to the spicy chop.

Ingredients:

4 pork chops (any cut.I used bone in loin chops) 
For the Marinade –
2 Tablespoons lime juice
2 Tablespoons pineapple juice
1 Tablespoon chili powder
1 Tablespoon olive oil
2 cloves of garlic, minced
1/2 teaspoon cumin
1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1/4 teaspoons kosher salt
1 Tablespoons hot sauce (I used Frank’s)
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon 
For the Salsa –
1 mango, diced
1 cup crushed pineapple, drain – juice reserved
handful of cherry tomatoes, chopped
1 green chili, finely diced
dash of lime juice
1/4 cup freshly chopped parsley

Recipe Instructions:

Mix together all the ingredients for the marinade until well
blended.  Pour/rub over pork and allow to marinate for 4 hours.

Meanwhile, combine the mango, drained pineapple, tomatoes, green chili, lime
juice, and parsley.  Add a little (or a lot, it’s up to you) pineapple
juice and stir to combine.  Allow to sit in fridge while pork marinates.

Preheat grill to medium-high.  Oil the grill grates.  Place the pork
directly onto the grates and grill for 4-6 minutes per side or until the pork
reaches an internal temperature of 145-150 degrees F.  Remove from grill,
serve with mango pineapple salsa, and enjoy!
