These Mole Rubbed Pork Chops are a spicy flavorful pleasure for the palate. One bite and you’re transported to a smokey, sweet and spicy place that you will not want to come back from.
The term “Mole” in this recipe is pronounced “Mo-lay”. So fear not, I am not talking about the weird burrowing creature (tee-hee). This Mole rub is inspired by the Mexican Mole sauce that is served over meat. It is dark, slightly sweet and smokey, just like the rub in this recipe.
This is a great date night dish. Did you know that spicing things up at dinner can translate to what occurs in the bedroom? It has been reported that spicy food increases testosterone and libido levels for both men and women. In fact these same effects help with weight loss, so serving Mole Rubbed Pork Chops is a win win on date night.
It hasn’t escaped me that this recipe is for four. You can wrap up the other two chops and store in the freezer for up to one month. The frozen chops can be used for tacos for another date night perhaps. However, if your date is much like mine, those extra chops will never make it to the freezer.
Mole Rubbed Pork Chops is a great dish for a gathering too. If you need more than four, just double up on the ingredients.
