Ingredients
  • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 3 tablespoons chili powder
  • 1 tablespoon jalapeno hot sauce
  • 2 pounds thin-cut bone-in pork chops (about 6 chops)
  • Kosher salt
  • 4 stalks celery, chopped
  • 1 large white onion, chopped
  • 3 cloves garlic, chopped
  • 2 cups low-sodium chicken broth
  • 1 14 .5-ounce can no-salt-added diced tomatoes
  • 1 15 -ounce can no-salt-added white beans, drained and rinsed
  • 1 5 -ounce package chopped kale (about 6 cups packed)
Directions

Preheat the broiler. Whisk 1 tablespoon each olive oil, chili powder and hot sauce in a bowl. Season the pork chops with 1/2 teaspoon salt. Pierce the chops all over with a fork and rub with the spice mixture on both sides; place on a rack set over a baking sheet. Set aside.

Heat the remaining 1 tablespoon olive oil in a Dutch oven or large pot over medium-high heat. Add the celery, onion, garlic and the remaining 2 tablespoons chili powder. Cook, stirring, until the vegetables are translucent, about 8 minutes.

Add the chicken broth and tomatoes to the pot. Cook, stirring occasionally, until reduced by about one-third, about 7 minutes. Add the beans and kale; toss to coat. Reduce the heat to medium, cover and cook until the kale is tender, about 7 minutes. (Add up to 1/2 cup water if the mixture looks dry.) Season with salt.

Meanwhile, broil the pork until browned, 4 to 6 minutes. Flip; broil until cooked through, 2 more minutes. Serve with the kale and beans.
