4 chops (1 1/2" thick, bone-in)
2 Ripe Yellow (a little blackish) Plantains
Cooking spray or a paper towel dabbed with oil
1 tbs brown sugar
2 tsp onion powder
1 1/2 tsp cocoa
1 tsp garlic powder
1/4 tsp ground Chipotle pepper, depending on heat desired
1/8 tsp ground paprika
dash ground cinnamon

1 large mango, peeled, pit removed, cubed
juice of 1 fresh lime
1 tablespoon finely chopped red onion
1 to 2 teaspoon snipped fresh cilantro
1/4 tsp salt
In small bowl, combine dry rub ingredients, rub onto both sides of pork chops. Set aside overnight or for 30 minutes.
(This tastes even better when done on a charcoal grill) Spray light coat of cooking spray on non stick pan. Heat pan over medium flame. Place pork chops on hot pan and cover. Cook for about 7 minutes per side.
Combine ingredients in bowl.
Spray non stick pan generously with cooking spray. Heat pan over medium heat.
Remove peels from plantains but cutting each tip off and then cutting a slit down the side.
Slice plantains on the diagonal about 1/2 inch thick each slice. Place slices in hot pan so that they do not overlap and cook until golden brown on each side (about 2 or 3 minutes per side.)
