I seasoned my pork chops with s/p a little chipolte chili powder and some smoked paprika. Cooked per directions but we just didn't care for this recipe. Gave my son the leftovers and he loved it.

I prepared this dish slightly differently. I used a cast iron skillet - browned the chops first using cayenne pepper and Paul Prudhomme's Meat Magic for seasoning. I removed the pork chops and...

I used very thick pork chops that took about 30 minutes to cook. Very Good recipe.

This was really good. I made a few changes though. The vegetable turned out great and instead of using diced tomatoes i used Pace Salas. Also i seasoned the pork chops with Mrs Dash seasoning an...

These are pretty good chops, very different from the many others I've tried before. I too added a dash of cayenne pepper and cumin to each chop while frying, which added a noticeable kick!

This is a great recipe! We had to bake it about 45 minutes due to doubling the recipe, but it was still only about one hour from start to finish. Added rinsed canned black beans to the recipe ...

Good dinner with lots of vegetables. After reading several reviews, I too seasoned the pork chops before browning them. Served the vegetables over white rice. Thanks for sharing the recipe.

As many of the other reviewers stated, the vegetables are great, but the chops were bland. To help the chops, I spiced up the chops by rubbing with a mexican spice mix, salt, and pepper.
