  • 4-5 pork chops
  • 1 hatch green Chile
  • ¼ cup olive oil
  • ½ lime
  • salt
  • pepper


Preheat oven to 350 F, and roast a whole hatch green Chile for 15 minutes.

Remove from oven and add to a blender, with olive oil, salt and pepper.

In an air tight container add pork chops and pour the hatch green Chile sauce over top. Marinate overnight.

In a skillet, heat olive oil to medium, then sear pork chops. Cook until completely cooked inside. Then remove from heat, let sit 5 minutes, squeeze lime juice and enjoy!
