Ingredients

Directions

  • Sprinkle all sides of pork chops with Cajun seasoning. Coat peppers with nonstick cooking spray; set aside.
  • For a charcoal grill, place pork chops, sweet pepper quarters, and poblano pepper quarters on the rack directly over medium coals. Grill, uncovered, for 7 to 9 minutes or until chops are slightly pink in centers (160°F) and peppers are crisp-tender, turning once halfway through grilling. Add jalapeño pepper halves to the grill for the last 2 to 3 minutes of grilling. (For a gas grill, preheat grill. Reduce heat to medium. Place chops, sweet pepper quarters, and poblano pepper quarters on grill rack over heat. Cover and grill as above, adding jalapeño pepper halves to grill as above.)
  • Meanwhile, in a medium saucepan, bring chicken broth to boiling; add couscous. Remove from heat. Cover and let stand for 5 minutes. Slice sweet pepper and poblano pepper quarters into bite-size strips. Finely chop jalapeño pepper halves. Stir peppers and almonds into couscous. Serve couscous mixture with pork chops.
