  • 4 medium Yukon Gold potatoes (about 1 1/2 pounds), cut into 2-inch chunks
  • 5 teaspoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • Salt
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • 3/4 cup orange marmalade
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro
  • 1 tablespoon minced chipotle chilies in adobo sauce with 1 teaspoon sauce

  1. Place the potatoes in a medium saucepan and fill with water until just covered. Set pan over high heat and bring to a boil. Boil 10 minutes or until potatoes are fork tender. Drain, return potatoes to pan, add 3 teaspoons of the oil and mash until just chunky. Season to taste with salt and black pepper.

  3. Heat remaining oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Season both sides of the pork chops with salt and black pepper to taste; add to pan. Cook 1 to 2 minutes per side or until golden brown. Remove pork from pan; set aside.
  4. Add orange marmalade mixture to the pan. Simmer, stirring frequently, 2 to 3 minutes or until mixture thickens and reduces slightly.
