"Feeling fit is a family priority for Sandy Shortt and her gang. 'We always try to eat healthy and keep active,' notes the Cedarville, Ohio reader. Southwest Summer Pork Chops get their zesty appeal from a simple combination of herbs and seasonings. 'We love the seasoning blend on pork, but you can also use it on chicken,' recommends Sandy. 'It gives foods a terrific taste without added salt.'"

We made these last night on the gas grill, very very good. Pork was tender, used 1 1/2 in thick center cut pork chops and Budweiser BBQ sauce. I marinated only 4 hours and still could taste the ...
