This special pork dish has a zesty flair and is a snap to prepare. A sweet fruity salsa balances perfectly with the spicy rub that coats the pan-fried chops.—Bonnie Bufford, Nicholson, Pennsylvania

"I have made this several times. You can use any spreadable fruit and it turns out great. Just use what you have on hand. I have a friend who does not eat pork so she made it with chicken breasts and thought it was delicious, too."
