Directions

Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C).

  • Whisk egg in a shallow bowl. Combine flour and pepper in another shallow bowl. Mix Cheddar cheese, jalapeno chips, and lime zest in a third bowl.

  • Toss pork chops in the flour to coat. Shake off excess, then dunk in egg. Coat chops in the chip and cheese mixture.

  • Heat oil and margarine in a medium skillet over medium-high heat. Fry each pork chop until browned on the outside, 2 minutes per side. Transfer chops to a baking dish or foil-lined baking pan.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until pork is no longer pink in the center, about 25 minutes. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read 145 degrees F (63 degrees C).

I really loved the flavor combo in these. They were not spicy at all so don't let that scare you off. My chops were thick and still got a little overdone so I recommend checking that after 20 minutes. This is a great recipe for chops and one I will use again. Read More

We’ve used version in place of pork but these are our whole families favorite, we place chopped up jalapeños on top too! Read More

Very nice. I made adjustments to cooking time since my chops weren’t so thick. I also didn’t add the cheese until after the chips were fried and baked. I added some diced jalapeños before baking. We like them! Read More

This was good although there wasn’t nearly enough spice for me. Next time I’ll try to add some additional spice to it. It was also difficult to cook it without the cheese sticking to the pan. Read More

It was good. I had relatively thin pork chops about an inch thick and by 25 minutes in the oven they were overdone. I would recommend 20 minutes baking next time. I was surprised that the "breading" had a good lime and cheese flavor. Easy to make. Read More
