  • Heat oil in a skillet over medium-high heat. Cook pork chops in the hot oil, in batches if necessary, until browned on both sides, about 5 minutes. Transfer chops to a 9x13-inch baking dish and season with salt. Pour rice around the pork chops.

  • Mix water, tomato sauce, and taco seasoning together in a bowl. Pour over pork chops and rice. Cover baking dish with aluminum foil.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until rice is tender and liquid is mostly absorbed, about 1 hour. Remove cover and top with bell pepper rings and Cheddar cheese. Continue baking until cheese is melted, about 15 minutes more.

This sounded good but I found it lacking. I think it may need more seasoning and perhaps onions green chiles etc. Read More

This was awesome! My husband and I both loved this dish. Since I didn't have a pkg of taco seasoning on hand, I did have some taco seasoning which I added to the tomato sauce (to taste), and I used 2C of grated cheese as we really like cheese. Didn't have fresh red bell pepper, so used jarred roasted red peppers on my half. We gave this recipe an "A"!! Thanks! Read More
