"Easy to prepare with ingredients already found in my kitchen. There was plenty of sauce so you could easily cook more chops. The spicy flavor was perfect for me, but my husband added some hot sauce to kick up the heat. I will definitely make it again."

"I was worried that there would be too much heat in the sauce, but it was perfectly seasoned! The chops were very tender, and my husband has already requested that I make it again. I did add a can of mushrooms with the onions."
