Ingredients
  1. 1 pound New York (top loin) pork chops, about 1 inch thick, cut into 1-inch cubes
  2. 1 orange-fleshed sweet potato, (about 12 ounces), cut into 1-inch cubes
  3. 12 ounces small red potatoes, or white potatoes, about 1 inch in diameter (or halved if 2 inches in diameter)
  4. Salt , to taste
  5. 1/2 cup barbecue sauce, purchased or homemade
  6. 1/2 cup honey
  7. 3 canned chipotle chiles in adobo sauce, minced, or more to taste
  8. 12 scallions, white and light green parts only, cut into 1-inch pieces
  9. 1/2 cup goat cheese, crumbled
  10. 1 tablespoon fresh cilantro, chopped
Instructions
  1. Place sweet potatoes and red or white potatoes in a medium saucepan, cover with cold water by 1 inch, and season water with salt. Bring to a boil over high heat, then reduce to a simmer and cook until potatoes are cooked but still firm, 3 to 5 minutes. Drain and set aside to cool slightly.
  2. Meanwhile, in a small bowl, combine barbecue sauce, honey and chipotles. Divide mixture in half and set both batches aside.
  3. Thread pork, sweet potatoes, potatoes and scallions onto 8 12-inch skewers (pre-soaked in water if wood or bamboo). Prepare a grill to medium-hot heat and thoroughly oil the grate. Cook 2 1/2 to 3 minutes on each side, brushing with one batch of the sauce each time you turn, cooking until all 4 sides are browned, pork is cooked through, and the sauce is used up, about 10 minutes. Transfer skewers to a platter and set aside to rest 3 minutes.
  4. Sprinkle skewers with cheese and cilantro. Serve hot with the remaining batch of sauce on the side.
