Pan-fried pork chops with a fiery kick. *Extremely spicy.* I kind of just threw this together while I was messing around in the kitchen one day. The batter or marinade can be easily altered to appeal to anyone's taste. Again, these turn out very spicy, but still have a ton of flavor, not just that hot that leaves your mouth burning.

Instructions Checklist
  • Combine onion, jalapeno peppers, habanero peppers, garlic, and Worcestershire in the bowl of a food processor; puree until smooth.

  • Pour a thin layer of marinade in the bottom of a medium rectangular glass or ceramic container so the bottom is completely covered. Place 4 pork chops in the bowl and cover in marinade. Add last 4 pork chops and pour in remaining marinade, ensuring all pork chops are coated. Cover and refrigerate, 8 hours to overnight.

  • Pour marinade and chops into a large saucepan. Add water and bring to a boil. Continue to boil, 10 to 12 minutes.

  • Meanwhile, combine flour, onion soup mix, cayenne, garlic powder, and seasoned salt for batter in a small mixing bowl.

  • Transfer boiled chops to a cutting board, softly pat with a paper towel to remove excess liquid, and coat with batter. Discard any remaining boiling liquid.

  • Heat enough oil in a large frying pan over medium-high heat that it fills the pan to 1/4 inch.

  • Fry chops in the hot oil until golden brown, 1 to 2 minutes; flip and continue to cook until golden brown, 1 to 2 minutes more. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read 145 degrees F (63 degrees C).
