Spicy Tomato Pork Chops

Total Time

Simmered in tomato sauce, these pork chops are big at our house. I add garlic powder and Creole or Cajun seasoning before browning the chops to give them extra punch. —Holly Neuharth, Mesa, Arizona

    This is a great base recipe! I spiced it up a bit by seasoning the chops before browning with chili powder, garlic powder, and s&p. Then I added sliced sweet peppers and garlic with the onion. I also added a bit more water to cover the chops better and we enjoyed the extra sauce. My husband LOVED these!

    These were delicious! I would have given it 5 stars if the sauce were thicker. Just rating these as written.

    Easy to prepare with ingredients already found in my kitchen. There was plenty of sauce so you could easily cook more chops. The spicy flavor was perfect for me, but my husband added some hot sauce to kick up the heat. I will definitely make it again.

    This was very good. We added extra pepper flakes for even more zip. The sauce was good over rice also.
