Cumin lends a real Southwestern flair to this satisfying main dish sent by Loyse Keith, Enumclaw, Washington. The tender baked chops pick up extra flavor from the well-seasoned rice. "Sometimes I use celery instead of green pepper and boneless skinless chicken breasts instead of the pork chops," Loyse notes.
