Usually, I soft-pedal the whole issue of heat in the recipes I share with you. That’s because I think a lot of people are uneasy about any food that’s described as spicy. I do get it. What’s the pleasure in having your mouth feel like it’s on fire? Or breaking out in a cold sweat after a bite or two? Usually when I do share a spicier dish, I tell you that cutting back on Cayenne or eliminating the seeds in Jalapenos will yield a kinder, gentler dish. But today, I am not going to do that. This version of plain old Pork Chops gets its character from a really great combination of spicy-hot ingredients. And let’s face it, pork chops can use the help.
