These are no ordinary pork chops! LaDonna Reed from Ponca City, Oklahoma dressed them up with salsa and a hint of orange juice. Serve them over a side of rice for a complete, quick meal.

I can not grill so I put them in an 8 x 8 dish and put the sauce on top covered it and baked it at 350 for 30 minutes. It turned out great and moist!
