I work 9 hours a day, so I need delicious and simple recipes like this one. My husband thinks I work hard fixing meals, but these chops are good and easy. In summer, I can my own salsa and use some to top these chops.—LaDane Wilson, Alexander City, Alabama

"I had to reduce the recipe for 3 people. I used about 1/3 jar of salsa mixed with 1/2 cup water and a tsp of chicken bouillon powder. For some reason the chops were tough but the flavor was really good."

"quick, easy, very good. i added sharp shredded cheese last 5 minutes of cooking. The thing I liked about this is that you don't have to go buy any more ingredients as most households have salsa."
