4 pork chops


  • 4 bone-in pork chops, trimmed of fat

  • 1 pinch salt and ground black pepper to taste

  • 1 pinch garlic powder

  • 1 pinch ground cumin

  • 1 pinch red pepper flakes

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil

  • 1 (15.25 ounce) can Tex-Mex style corn, drained

  • 1 (15 ounce) can Ranch-style mixed beans, drained

  • 1 (10 ounce) can diced tomatoes and green chiles (such as RO*TEL®)

  • cup brown sugar

  • 4 cups cooked rice


  1. Season pork chops with salt, pepper, garlic powder, cumin, and red pepper flakes.

  2. Heat oil in skillet over medium-high heat. Add pork chops and cook, in batches if necessary, until browned, about 3 minutes per side. Remove from skillet and set aside.

  3. Combine corn, beans, tomatoes, and brown sugar in the skillet. Cook until heated through, about 3 minutes. Return pork chops to the skillet and cover. Reduce heat and simmer until chops are slightly pink in the centers, about 25 minutes. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the centers should read 145 degrees F (63 degrees C). Serve over rice.
