Pork Chops With Nectarine Salsa Recipe

This special pork dish from Bonnie Bufford of Nicholson, Pennsylvania 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.

Ingredients

  • 2 teaspoons chili powder
  • 1 teaspoon ground coriander
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1/2 teaspoon paprika

  • 4 boneless pork loin chops (4 ounces each and 1/2 inch thick)

"While my husband and I really enjoyed these chops, my children were less enthralled with the nectarine (or peach in our case) salsa. I really liked the change of pace flavor and it was a really quick recipe to make. Unfortunately, I probably won't be making this again."
