Unusual but delicious way to serve pork chops. Colorful, quick and easy! Serve over steamed rice, if desired, or just as it is.

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 kept them warm while I sauteed the vegetables and added the corn and tomatoes as directed. I then put pork chops back on top, added a glass cover and popped it in the oven for approx. 25 minutes. Saved on clean-up that way. It came out very well - we served as is (without rice) and had corn bread to go with it. A complete meal! Read More

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. Read More

I thought this was great. I also added a cup of black beans as one reviewer suggested. It does need spice so added garlic salt pepper and chili powder to the veg. mixture and put the chili directly on the chops-yummy. I would be happy with the mixture over the rice as a meatless meal. Weight Watcher friendly points depend on size of chop. Read More

This was actually very good. I'm afraid of anything that has that much "good food" in it. But any dish that gets me to eat onions and peppers has got to be worth five stars. Incidently I just put it all in the slow cooker. Read More

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 and added a few drops of blasamic vingeratte. Let it marinate while i was cooking the vegatables. I served it with lipton's dirty rice. Thanks for a great recipe. Read More

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! Read More

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 and used Vidalia onions. Just sprinkled a little McCormick's Salt and Spice over the finished recipe for a little zing. Yum! The kids love it and love helping wash veggies and chopping them with my Pampered Chef food chopper. (It really makes things like this easy.) I also baked in stonware for a better taste. Serve it over fresh rice and the corn-rice combo makes it extra healthy. I trimmed the fat off the chops so it is really low fat. This recipe would work for chicken or beef and be just as delicious!

This recipe is full of flavor....I also seasoned the chops before cooking. I would recommend that you make sure to completely cover the chops with juice so they do not dry out....Great recipe even my 7 year old gobbled it up!!!! Read More

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. Read More
