directions
1. Coat lamb chops with pepper and salt.

3. Drain excess fat from pan. Return pan to stove over medium heat. Add port, chocolate, anise extract, cumin, and chipotle, swirling around until thickened and reduced by 1/3 to 1/2, about 10 minutes. Place lamb chops on 4 plates. Drizzle sauce over chops and serve.
