4 ounces chopped canned green chilies
2 teaspoons dried oregano
2 cloves garlic, minced
2 teaspoons ground cumin
1/4 cup cider vinegar
4 boneless pork center loin chops, about 1 1/2-inches thick
2 teaspoons oil

In a blender container, process the chilies, oregano, garlic, cumin, and vinegar until smooth. Put the chops in a non-reactive dish and pour the marinade over them. Turn a few times to coat. Cover and refrigerate for 4 to 24 hours.
Heat the oil in a heavy skillet over medium-high heat. Remove the chops from the marinade and cook 6 to 8 minutes on each side until the internal temperature registers 145°F. Let the chops rest for about 3 minutes before serving.

When the basil is fresh from the garden or farmer’s market and the grill is fired up, serve these full-flavored pork chops. Shaved parmesan is delicious on top of the chops and serve with sliced summer tomatoes drizzled with olive oil and balsamic.
