    Sue Lau's Note:

    Another great Southwest recipe. The level of spiciness is your option. I like a lot of cayenne, but you can leave it out and still get great results.

      Sure glad this recipe came to the light of day! Loved it - very hot & spicy but the heat seems to enhance the pork flavor not detract from it/ I used ancho paste in lieu of dried & the ancho salt (about 1 1/2 tbps, for 2 chops) and 3/4 tsp cayenne. Cooked on medium hot fire for first flip then after basting turned heat down to medium and gave it a bit longer to cook. I cut the recipe in two and it was fabulous, Love that heat, thanks SueL

      We loved the flavor of the seasoning paste. I used 1/2 tsp cayenne and it wasn't hot at all - will kick it up a notch next time. Some of the paste stuck to the grill, but the baste kept things moist. A real keeper.

      Very good. The baste tended to wash the paste off the chops, but still very tasty. Used 1/2 t. cayenne and thought the heat level was just right. Thanks!
