Chipotle Lime Grilled Pork Chops with Avocado Mango Salsa

Pork chops on the grill are a summer favorite. This tasty idea uses a loin chop – so helps keep fat and calories in check while that marinade helps flavorize and tenderize. Top it with the pretty salsa that's a snap to make – and you have a meal that your family and friends will be raving about.
