Pour the marinade into a small saucepan and bring to a boil. Boil one minute; remove from the heat. Allow the chops to stand at room temperature for 15 to 30 minutes before grilling. Prepare the grill for direct cooking over medium heat (350° to 450°F). Brush the cooking grates clean. Grill the chops over direct medium heat, with the lid closed as much as possible, until barely pink in the center, 8 to 10 minutes, turning once or twice and occasionally basting with the boiled marinade. Remove from the grill and let rest for 3 to 5 minutes. Serve warm with black beans and rice, if desired. Que Bueno!
