Step 2: Remove pork. Pat dry with paper towels. Season with chili powder, Himalyan (or sea) salt & paprika. (You can also use Chipolte Chili Powder).

Optional: Add 3 black plums , 1 tsp. chopped chives, 1 tbsp. lime juice, 1 tbsp. honey and 1/8 tsp. Himalayan (or sea) salt to skillet, before removing pork chops. Sautee, stirring often, until plums soften. (Approximately 3 tbsp.
