  • 6 (1-inch thick) boneless pork chops

  • 1 tablespoon adobo seasoning

  • 1 (.18 ounce) packet sazon seasoning

  • ½ teaspoon garlic powder

  • teaspoon ground black pepper

  • ¼ teaspoon salt

  • 3 tablespoons Italian dressing, divided

  • 1 ½ cups water

  • ¼ cup margarine

  • 6 (6 ounce) packages dry stuffing mix (such as Stove Top®)

  • toothpicks

  • 1 tablespoon water, or as desired


  1. Preheat the oven to 300 degrees F (150 degrees C).

  2. Place pork chops in a large bowl and season all sides with adobo seasoning, Sazón seasoning, garlic powder, black pepper, and salt; add 2 tablespoons Italian dressing and flip to coat.

  3. Bring 1 1/2 cups water and margarine to a boil in a saucepan; add stuffing mix and cover. Remove saucepan from heat and set aside until stuffing absorbs water, about 5 minutes; fluff with a fork.

  4. Remove pork chops from the bowl, reserving liquid and seasonings. Lay each pork chop flat on a cutting board and with a sharp knife held parallel to the board, cut a pocket into the pork, leaving three sides intact. Stuff each pork chop with stuffing and close the pocket using a toothpick.

  5. Arrange pork chops on a baking sheet. Mix remaining 1 tablespoon Italian dressing and 1 tablespoon water with reserved juices from pork chops; pour over pork chops.

  6. Bake in the preheated oven until pork chops are cooked through, 25 to 35 minutes. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read at least 145 degrees F (63 degrees C).
