Sweet 'n' Spicy Grilled Pork Chops Recipe

Sweet 'n' Spicy Grilled Pork Chops Recipe

This started out as a mild sauce that I decided to "spice up". You'll find it's easy to adjust the seasonings to suit your family's taste. I also like to use the sauce on boneless skinless chicken breasts. —Gladys Peterson, Beaumont, Texas
