Peachy Pork with Rice

Peach preserves sweeten the spicy salsa in this delicious dish that’s nice enough for company. Adjust the heat level to taste by using mild or spicy salsa and seasoning. —Melissa Molaison, Hawkinsville, Georgia

    We enjoyed this very much. I used an excellent Mexican-style salsa and apricot fruit spread in place of the peach jam. But since there are only two of us we ended up with leftovers, which I prefer to avoid. Next time I will use either skinless boneless chicken thighs or will sacrifice tenderness for portion control and go with a boneless pork chop.

    Super easy to cook after work but not overly flavorful

    A really good easy recipe for a quick fix. I didn't have any taco seasoning so I left it out and increased the peach preserves to about 1/4 cup. It was yummy! It was really good with the accompanying recipe, seasoned green beans.(Simple and Delicious, August/September 2015, page 26)

    This dish was very easy to make and had good flavor. The sauce wasn't exactly what we expected. I was hoping for a sweeter sauce (more peach flavor) while my husband wanted a spicier sauce. I think next time I will make a sweeter sauce for me and use a spicier salsa for him. Otherwise it was great! We also served with cooked quinoa instead of rice.

    Simplicity itself...this is a delicious dish. I cut it in half to serve 3 people, using 8 oz. of pork and it was enough. Loved it.

    This one was a good one too. I made it per recipe as always the first time I try a new one. Next time will add a few ingredients to it.
