Ancho Chili Pork Chops with Pineapples Gluten Free Recipe

Do you love those quick and easy recipes where you can get dinner on the table in less then 20 minutes?  Me too.  Anything to keep that easy, healthy, gluten free life accessible.   Here is an old standby that was inspired by Tacos el Pastor.  It includes quick fry pork chops, pineapples and beans.  It’s great served with a side salad or just toss it on top of the plate!  If you have any guacamole hanging around by all means add it to the plate.  Enjoy this gluten free recipe and let me know what you add on your plate.


4 organic quick fry pork chops

1 tablespoon Ancho Chili powder

2 teaspoons Adobo

2 teaspoons organic coconut oil

1 cup pineapple chunks, fresh cut or canned in its own juices please

1 cup of your favorite beans, red, pinto or black are best


Heat a a non-stick or iron skillet on medium high with oil.

Sprinkle seasonings (reserve 1/3 for pineapple) onto pork chops and place into pan.  Cook until starting to brown, approximately 5-9 minutes.

Turn chops over and cook another 2-4 minutes or until brown.  Don’t over cook these chops.  With them being thin they should cook up fast so don’t leave the pan.

Place chops on a plate and cover with foil.  Toss the pineapple into the pan and sprinkle with remaining seasonings.  Heat on medium high to high until warmed through, approximately 2-4 minutes.

To serve place chop on plate with pineapple and a serving of beans.

Note:  To make this Paleo, swap out the beans for sweet potatoes.

    I love it any time you talk pork, Diane! Pork chops are one of our favorite meals and this is a great combo. 🙂

      Thank you Shirley. Have you seen the little pig salt and pepper shakers at Potterybarn? I do love the pig.

        Diane, you know I'm not a shopper. I've never been in a Pottery Barn. Ever. Pig things are cute. I've been using my pig cutting board a lot lately. 😉

          They're really cute.… I like the phone and the pumpkin S&P too.

            Those look so much more upscale that what I had envisioned … cute! And I love the pumpkin shakers, of course. :=)

            I know what you mean. They are hard to resist. They both would be a fun addition to my S&P collection, but don't think I have the space.

      Thank you! I think if we have some fast meals with real food we're more likely to cook them. I don't see many people spending hours in the kitchen anymore.
