"A hearty dinner, great with rice! It is one of family's favorite dinners given to me by my sister. You may adjust amounts of beans and salsa to your preference. I always seem to add more!"

  1. Season pork chops with pepper.
  2. Heat oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Cook pork chops in hot oil until browned, 3 to 5 minutes per side.
  3. Pour beans and salsa over pork chops and season with cilantro. Bring to a boil, reduce heat to medium-low, cover the skillet, and simmer until pork chops are cooked no longer pink in the center, 20 to 35 minutes. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read 145 degrees F (63 degrees C).

We prepared this dish as in the recipe, but with boneless butterfly porkchops. It was very quick, simple and tasty! Along with some yellow rice, the whole meal cost no more than $7 to feed fou...

I was nervous about making this because my husband is really picky and sure enough, he didn't like the combination of the chops and beans. I, on the other hand, LOVED it! It reminded me of my da...

LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this recipe. Very simple, economical, tender and delicious. I've already made this a couple times. I actually followed the recipe closely (which is unlike me), except for sprink...

Plate licking good! I seasoned my pork with some chili powder, garlic, season salt, and onion powder. I also served mine over rice. I will definitely make this again!

I seasoned my pork chops with chipotle pepper, salt, and black pepper before browning them. Leftover homemade salsa and the black beans were stirred together and poured over the pork chops in t...

I admit I freely seasoned while browning with cumin, salt, garlic and onion. I omitted cilantro because my husband dislikes it. This was surprisingly good. A big hit. Soo easy, thank you.
