This was amazing and so easy I think I could make it in my sleep. I was looking for something to do with an open jar of salsa I needed to use up and found this. I didn't have a "garlic pepper blend" so I seasoned the chops with pepper and garlic. (lol). These were the juiciest pork chops I think I've ever had. No chewing cotton balls! My chops were a little less than an inch thick and I simmered them exactly 15 minutes. While chops were simmering, I roasted asparagus in the oven and the whole dinner was perfect. Thank you!!

Just made this meal, turned out great. I added chopped green and red peppers to the salsa with a little balsamic vinegar, really brings out flavor of salsa and pineapple. Can't wait to serve to my family. I added Mixed Veg Potato Salad and Brown Rice/Gungu Peas as sides. Yum Nice Big mean, all turned out excellent.....

I am allergic to pineapple, can I use mango instead? Otherwise this sounds wonderful!

I was surprised at how well we liked this. My picky 8 year old loved it! I served this with fried potatoes, refried beans and flour tortillas that we had leftover from taco night.

So simple and very tasty. I served it with jasmine rice. I also used pineapple tidbits instead of the crushed. I don't think I would have liked that texture.

I made this for my family of 4 and my daughter who thinks she should be a vegetarian though she loves bacon, ham and hot dogs LOVED this. My mom who is not a fan of salsa except on chips really liked it, too. A big hit and a make again item!

This recipe was very easy, fast, and tasted great. I may use spicier salsa the next time since my husband and I like extra heat.
