With a kick from taco seasoning, everyday and ordinary take a backseat to new and exciting. You'll love this dressed-up version of the weeknight staple. These pork chops are tender, saucy and just right for the kids. —Fay Baswell, Lodi, California

"I would like to make this in a slow cooker. Does anyone know how to change the recipe to do that?

I'm sorry to put this under reviews. I didn't see any place to ask questions."

"These were very good. I can't wait to try this on other meats. I did not use the water and flour to make extra sauce, because you already have plenty. My husband was very surprised by these. Everyone enjoyed them"
