  3. Once olive oil is heated place onion slices across the bottom of the skillet.
  4. Season pork chops with the garlic salt and pepper.

  7. Pour HERDEZ(R) Salsa Verde over pork chops and simmer for 5 minutes.
  8. Serve.

Footnotes

  • Additional ideas:
  • If skillet is too small, a smaller skillet may be used cooking two pork chops at a time, using 1/2 of the original ingredients.
  • For a more colorful dish, slice 1/2 of a red bell pepper and 1/2 yellow bell pepper vertically in 1/4 inch slices. Place peppers in skillet with onions and pork chops. Cook as directed.

Simple, quick and just the right amount of kick. The mixture of carmalized onion and the green salsa was so good! Sharing this recipe!

The Salsa Verde added a tangy twist to the dish that my family really liked. I would recommend adding red and/or green peppers to make it look more colorful like it suggested.

I had a great idea with this one! I cooked the pork, adding a bit of water (1/2 c. at most) which got up all the brown bits and made a nice broth. Iadded some cumin to the pork to spice it up a ...

Emmm, good stuff. Quick & easy.

Unfortunately we faliled to look at the sodium content in the salsa verde before using it! The one recommended in the recipe has a very high sodium content. We aren't watching our sodium, but ...

I thought this tasted decent, or as good as any pork chop recipe that one might cook in a crock pot. I only had to cook the pork chops for 15 minutes and then once I added the sauce about 3 minu...

Very good! I cooked mine (bone in pork chops) in the crockpot and they were very tasty! Made great leftovers for burritos!
