Chipotle Bacon

Got your attention did I?  Good! Okay, so not precisely bacon, but grab a coupla thin pork chops, with bone for texture and fat for flavor. Flash pan fry them, a minute or so on high each side, then lower the heat. Add a cup or so of canned tomatoes pureed with two chipotles and a little of their sauce. Cover the sauce pan and simmer on low for 15-20 minutes (those dry pork chops will simmer tender, if you let 'em).  Serve with rice and beans and warm tortillas, and let me know how you like it.


  1. Canned tomatoes? What am I supposed to do with the 300 pounds of tomatoes in my backyard?

  2. "dry pork chops" That's the story of my life. I'll have to try this.

  3. I had the most delicious ordereve (ok, I'm not looking up the spelling) and there was bacon involved. It was an Italian fig (green, not black mission) with a chunk of gorgolonia cheese (again, not looking it up) wrapped in bacon. Gads it was good
