Reviews for Southwestern Pineapple Pork Chops
"I am allergic to pineapple, can I use mango instead? Otherwise this sounds wonderful!"
"Fast, easy, and delicious. Great weeknight meal."
"I was surprised at how well we liked this. My picky 8 year old loved it! I served this with fried potatoes, refried beans and flour tortillas that we had leftover from taco night."
"So simple and very tasty. I served it with jasmine rice. I also used pineapple tidbits instead of the crushed. I don't think I would have liked that texture."
"Unbelievably simple and delicious quick dish to prepare. The family absolutely loved the presentation and flavor of the shallots."
"I made this for my family of 4 and my daughter who thinks she should be a vegetarian though she loves bacon, ham and hot dogs LOVED this. My mom who is not a fan of salsa except on chips really liked it, too. A big hit and a make again item!"
"This recipe was very easy, fast, and tasted great. I may use spicier salsa the next time since my husband and I like extra heat."
"I'm not a big salsa type, but loved this recipe! Pineapple and salsa is a great combination. This one is a keeper."
