Achiote-Rubbed Pork Chops

Achiote is also known as annatto. It’s widely used for adding color to cheeses. It will add a sweet, peppery flavor to the pork. It’s easy to find in the Latin foods aisle of your grocery store. Be sure to wear gloves if you’re going to handle the rub mixture. It won’t hurt you but will color your skin for a couple of days. An easy solution is to pour the rub ingredients into a one-gallon sealable plastic bag. Mix everything then add the pork chops. Seal the bag and move the chops around in the rub. Transfer the chops with tongs from the bag to the pan.
