Recipe for Apple Jalapeno Chops


1/2 cup monterey jack w/peppers; shredded
1/4 cup apple; finely chopped
1 tablespoon almonds; chopped
1 tablespoon cilantro; fresh & chopped
4 pork loin or rib chops; cut 1 1/4 (2 1/2 lbs)
1/2 cup apple jelly
1 jalapeno; seeded and chopped
2 tablespoon apple juice; or water
1 1/2 teaspoon cornstarch


For stuffing, in a small bowl toss together the shredded cheese, chopped apple, almonds and cilantro. Set aside. Trim fat from meat. Make a pocket in each chop by cutting horizontally into the chop from the fat side almost to the bone. Spoon about 1/4 of the stuffing into each pocket. If necessary, securely fasten the opening with toothpicks. For glaze, in a small saucepan combine jelly and jalepeno pepper. Cook and stir over low heat till jelly melts. Combine apple juice and cornstarch; stir into jelly mixture. Cook and stir until thickened and bubbly. Cook and stir 2 minutes more. Preheat gas grill. Adjust heat for indirect cooking. Place chops on grill rack over medium heat. Cover and grill for 40 to 50 minutes or till juices run clear, turning once halfway through and brushing with glaze after 25 minutes. 409 calories and 18 grams fat.
