Let's Make It
1
Mix dressing mix, 1/2 cup oil, vinegar, tomato juice, tequila, 1/4 cup honey, worcestershire sauce and red pepper until blended. Pour 3/4 cup over chops in shallow dish; turn over to evenly coat. Refrigerate remaining dressing mixture for later use. Refrigerate chops 2 hours to marinate.
2
Meanwhile, combine remaining honey, remaining oil, mangos, pineapples, onions and jalapeño peppers. Refrigerate until ready to use.
3
Heat grill to medium heat. Remove chops from marinade; discard marinade. Grill chops 8 to 10 min. on each side or until done (160°F), brushing occasionally with the reserved dressing mixture. Serve topped with the mango salsa.
