Chipotle- Lime Marinated Grilled Pork Chops

I let July slip by without trying a new recipe.  So this week I am trying two so I can go ahead and knock this goal out for two months.   I found this recipe on the Fresh Market website a few years ago.

Chipotle-Lime Marinated Grilled Pork Chops

4 boneless pork chops, about 1 1/4 inch thick (or bone-in)
1 chipotle chile in adobo sauce (or 1 dried chipotle, re hydrated* and minced**)
2 tsp. oregano
2 cloves of garlic, crushed
1/4 c. vegetable oil
2/3 c. lime juice
1 tbsp. fresh cilantro, chopped
1/2 tsp. salt

Place chops in a large self-sealing plastic bag; combine remaining ingredients in a small bowl and pour over chops.  Seal bag and refrigerate for 4-24 hours.  Remove chops from marinade (discarding marinade) and grill over medium-hot coals for a total of 12-15 minutes, turning to brown evenly.
Serve chops immediately.

* to rehydrate, cover chile with hot water for 10 minutes, let stand at room temperature.
** drain and use as directed.  Seed chile, if desired, to reduce piquancy a bit.

I was lazy and used minced garlic instead of buying some to crush.  And I used the diced chile that come in the jar.
