This recipe uses southwest ingredients to make a tasty and tender porkchop that is still low in calories. It is also easy to put into the marinade in the morning and simply cook later in the day for dinner.

Excellent pork chops. We grilled these. The avocado really adds to this as well. I have also used this marinade on chicken breasts and it turned out very tasty too.
