Makes

2 servings

Jalapeno peppers are quite abundant in this area of the country, and there are numerous ranches here that raise lambs. People seem to be eating food that's a little hotter nowadays, so I think this recipe will appeal to them.

Ingredients

  • 1 cup salsa
  • 1/2 cup chopped onion
  • 1/4 cup molasses
  • 1/4 cup fresh lime juice (about 2 limes)
  • 1/4 cup chicken broth
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 to 3 tablespoons chopped seeded jalapeno peppers
  • 2 teaspoons sugar
  • 4 lamb chops (1 inch thick)
  • Sour cream

Directions

  1. In a saucepan, combine the first eight ingredients. Simmer, uncovered, for 15-20 minutes.
  2. Meanwhile, grill lamb chops, turning once, over medium heat for 10-14 minutes for medium-rare, 14-16 minutes for medium. Brush with sauce during the last few minutes of grilling.
  3. Serve with sour cream.
Peppers (Hot)
Wear disposable gloves when cutting hot peppers; the oils can burn skin. Avoid touching your face.
