each pocket. If necessary, securely fasten the opening with
toothpicks. For glaze, in a small saucepan combine jelly and jalepeno

thickened and bubbly. Cook and stir 2 minutes more. Preheat gas
grill. Adjust heat for indirect cooking. Place chops on grill rack

run clear, turning once halfway through and brushing with glaze after
25 minutes. 409 calories and 18 grams fat.
