The Creole seasoning adds the right amount of kick to these pork chops. The black-eyed peas make the perfect accompaniment. —Irene Sullivan, Lake Mills, Wisconsin

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jul. 31, 2013

Really good with a little heat. Since I was only making it for 2, I only used one can of Rotel, undrained. I did forget to rinse and drain the black-eyed peas but I'm not sure why they need to be rinsed as I've used them for years without rinsing them. I let it simmer until the sauce was thickened. Excellent dinner.
