This recipe can be found on page 105 of the Best of WW Recipes Cookbook, or you can get it online at the WW website for Chili-rubbed pork chops.

I used my Finger Lickin’ Rub spice blend in place of the ingredients called for in the recipe because many of the same ingredients make up both. I served these with a side of WW Baked Beans and some Thai Slaw. Check back tomorrow for the baked beans recipe.

I used thick-cut bone-in pork chops, and they were just as good it not better than the boneless center-cut chops the recipe calls for, not much difference in protein or fat content, but more flavorful with the bone-in juices adding to the pork meat.
