Reviews for Salsa Skillet Pork Chops
"Definitely quick and easy. Don't overcook your pork chops!!"
"Made this exactly as the recipe says. It was really good!!! So easy to prepare and I love that!! I'm going to try it with chicken the next time. Thanks for sharing!!"
"I serve the Pork Chop over white rice and it is so good. My family loves it."
"Great flavor. I will be trying this same recipe but using chicken instead of pork to switch things up. This was also very easy to put together."
"I had chicken breasts on hand so I used them. It was a very good recipe and I had everything I needed on hand!"
"Very Tasty dish. Somethng different than just a plain pork chop. My family loves veggies so I did add tomatoes, onions, garlic and peppers. I grilled the pork chops first and finished them off in the sauce. Some fresh cilantro at the end really made the dish."
"A great weeknight meal! Quick and healthful, with great taste and bright flavors. My only addition to the recipe is to brine the chops 6-8 hrs. ahead of time (to tenderize them), and to add some sliced scallions on top, just before serving."
"I used frozen corn. was super easy and tasty :)"
"This was quite tasty and colorful. I like cumin so I would add a touch more than the recipe calls for. In addition to the salad, I also served with pineapple tidbits. Everyone cleaned their plate."
