Pork Chops with Chipotle, Onions and Cream

If it's the last thing you do this week, make these pork chops. I'm serious. Here's how...

Pork Chops with Chipotle, Onions and Cream

1 T olive oil
4 pork chops (whatever kind you like. I like thin-ish boneless ones.)
1 lrg yellow onion (cut into wedges)
1 T McCormick Gourmet Collection Chipotle Chile Pepper seasoning (apparently this is found in the spice section at your local grocer. I haven't ever found it. BUT I did find a McCormick Chipotle marinade pack (usually near the little packs of taco seasoning, maybe gravy mix stuff, crock pot seasoning stuff. Do you know what I'm talking about?) I have also just used some spices from the cupboard too (like a steak rub or even Season All. Whatever I have.)
1/2 t salt
1 C heavy cream
2 T fresh cilantro, minced

Cook chops, onion, chipotle seasonings in oil in pan. Cook thoroughly. Remove chops (throw them on a plate or something.) In same pan add remaining ingredients, scraping the bottom of the pan to get all the goodness up. Heat and then add chops back into sauce. YUM!
It's really good on rice.

I make this almost every week. Everyone loves it including the kids. Hope you enjoy it too!

This looks really good. I am not crazy about pork but Duane would love it if I made it more often. This looks super duper good.

This is funny because on Sunday Tod asked why I've never made pork chops.

Thank you from both of us.

I never make pork chops either. I'm definitely going to try it.

So I made this tonight...WOW! We will definitely be making this regularly. However, just a warning for anyone who tries it for the first time -- I should have listened to Megan and bought THIN chops...the ones I bought were fairly thick and took forever to cook! Then once they were done, the onions were over cooked. Totally my fault so buy thin chops or put the onions in for the last five minutes. Was great over rice and we will make this again!!
