2 teaspoon sea salt

0.5 teaspoon ancho chili powder

Pat pork chops with paper towel, then rub both sides of chops with the seasoning mixture
Preheat air fryer to 380 on air fry setting, and when ready, place pork chops on oven rack

Remove to a platter, cover and allow to rest for 5 minutes before serving

Recipe was made in an Instant Pot Omni Plus but can be used in any air fryer. You may need to cook in batches if using a smaller air fryer.
For thinner pork chops or boneless chops, check for doneness at 15 minutes.
More time may be needed for thicker pork chops.
