Special Pork Chops

I work nine hours a day, so I need delicious and simple recipes like this one. My husband thinks I work hard fixing meals, but this dish is good and easy. In summer, I can my own salsa and use some to top these chops. —LaDane Wilson, Alexander City, Alabama

    I had to reduce the recipe for 3 people. I used about 1/3 jar of salsa mixed with 1/2 cup water and a tsp of chicken bouillon powder. For some reason the chops were tough but the flavor was really good.

    Love that this dish is so simple and my husband really liked it. Like others, I added shredded cheese.

    So easy and tasty, my husband and I couldn't get enough. I like that you can use different flavor salsas for what ever mood you are in.

    quick, easy, very good. i added sharp shredded cheese last 5 minutes of cooking. The thing I liked about this is that you don't have to go buy any more ingredients as most households have salsa.
