Everywhere I turn lately I am seeing paprika lime. There was paprika lime popcorn at my farmer's market, paprika lime corn on a restaurant menu, and paprika lime fish at a friend's dinner party. It's everywhere and for good reason since the smoky, sweet paprika pairs so well with the tangy lime juice. While I usually make paprika lime chicken, this time I decided to try it our with lean pork chops instead. A girl can only eat so much chicken. And I absolutely loved the result. The lime juice keeps the pork nice and tender and the spices add tons of flavor. You can even kick it up a notch with some extra chili powder, add some sweetness with brown sugar, or add some dried herbs to make it your perfect dish.
