(KTVI) - Just because it's Autumn, doesn't mean you have to put the BBQ grill away, you can still spark it up and make some amazing dishes.

It just so happens that Adam Taki can help. He's the creator of "Amazing Taste Chef", helping you create easy gourmet meals.

Here's the recipe for the Pineapple Salsa Pork Chops:

pork chops, 4, approximately ¾ inch thick

pineapple, 6 rings, cut in ½ inch thick slices, fresh or canned

jalapeno, 1, halved lengthwise, seeds & veins removed

cilantro, 2 tablespoons, rinsed & chopped

fresh lime juice, 2 tablespoons

Amazing Taste® Pork seasoning, ½ packet

for pork chops:

Sprinkle both sides of the pork chops with Amazing Taste Pork seasoning, coating evenly.

Heat grill to MEDIUM-HIGH heat and oil the surface of the grill. Grill the pork until it’s internal temperature reaches a minimum of 145° F, approximately 4 to 5 minutes per side. Remove chops from the grill and let them rest for 5 minutes.

for pineapple salsa:

While pork chops are cooking, grill the cut pineapple and jalapenos lightly on each side*.

Dice pineapple and jalapeño.

Combine pineapple, jalapeno, cilantro and lime juice in a small bowl. Stir together gently, creating your salsa.

Serve your pork chops with salsa drizzled on top, or off to the side for dipping.

*Did you know… The longer you grill the jalapeno the milder it becomes.
