Instructions

Instructions are for 4 servings. Please modify as needed.

  1. Mix chipotle paste, oil and salt in a small bowl.
  2. Brush the meat with the marinade and let sit for 15 minutes. You can also marinate the meat in a plastic bag for 30 minutes or more in the fridge.
  3. Preheat the oven to 400°F (200°C). Grill the marinated meat on a rack on a baking sheet in the oven for 20–30 minutes until the meat is thoroughly done. Turn after 10-15 minutes.
  4. Meanwhile, prepare the garlic butter and the beans. Press the garlic clove, mix with butter and spices and set aside.
  5. Heat the oil in a frying pan. Sauté the beans for about 5 minutes on medium high heat until they have turned a nice color. Lower the heat towards the end, and add spices.
  6. Chop the onion finely. Peel and remove the pit from the avocado and mash the flesh coarsely with a fork. Stir onion and avocado into the beans. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Top with a handful of finely chopped cilantro.

Tip!

Grilling meat in the oven is super convenient because it takes care of itself. But, feel free to fry the chops in a frying pan or toss them on the grill. Whichever cooking method you prefer, you’ll still get chipotle deliciousness!

    This recipe was delicious! I couldn't find the "chipotle paste" so I subbed that ingredient with a can of Chipotle Peppers in Adobe and pureed them in a food processor (thanks Google). I was worried the pork chops would end up super spicy but they weren't at all! The garlic butter is delicious, it added another layer of YUM to the green beans! I also put some on my pork chops haha! Looking forward to lunch leftovers tomorrow!

    Absolutely amazing dinner! The flavours of the pork, beans and avocado together with the garlic butter are out of this world. This will definitely become a firm favourite. I couldn't find chipotle paste either, but smoky paprika spice blend worked a treat. I cooked the chops in the oven, but I'm willing to bet you'd get even more amazing results with a bbq.

    I'm new to this style of eating, so please excuse my naivete, but I am hoping someone can clarify the garlic butter is supposed to be eaten with the pork, right? It is not supposed to be eaten alone, like a side of mashed potatoes, right? I can't imagine eating butter outright, but I've seen several photos where garlic butter looks like a side dish, so I thought I would ask. Thanks!

  4. Hi Mary!

    Yes, personally I would add some meat to the butter. ;)

    I am curious if anyone in the US has found chipotle paste?

    This recipe was fine however reheating the avocado/green bean dish for lunch the next day was not good. turned everything slimy I thought. next time avocados will be sliced on the side at time of plating.

    The pork chops were okay, but the green beans with the avocado did not go well. Plus the added unappetizing lunch the next day with brown avocado in your green beans.

    Whole Foods has chipotle paste. It's in a tube like tomato paste.

    THIS IS SOOOOO TASTY!!! When I was cooking this last night, I thought "omg, I am going to add avocado to these green beans?!" ... but, WOW!! so good!!! I didn't care for green beans before this. Now, I LOVE THEM SO MUCH!! I didn't have chipotle paste, but we had chili paste! Worked out fabulously!! My boyfriend loved this whole meal, too! He said it's in the top 3 meals I've made! Can't wait to make this again next week! And can't wait to eat the leftovers today for lunch! hahah

    Just use chipotle peppers in a can and mash. For the leftover green beans squeeze a little lime on so the avocado stays green. This meal was amazing. I grilled mine on a skillet then put in oven. Sooooooooo good.

    I was skeptical about the avocado in the green beans, but it's delicious! My boyfriends who isn't even doing LCHF also loved it!
