(Thanks for saying something was missing before i made this) I added a can of low-sodium diced tomatoes and only used 3 bone-out pork chops (about 10 oz. total)I recommend cooking the pork chops and onion at the same time and not allowing the onion to tenderize before putting in the chops.Also, in combining the salsa, chilies step, along with the can of diced tomatos, I added a package of store-bought cajun rice. (following the package instructions)It made this dish a meal!Delicious and I would recomment to anyone.

Probably wont make again unless I had the pork on hand and nothing else to make. It didnt taste bad and wasnt bland but it just didnt have enough of something. I did like that it is healthy, easy and you can actually taste the flavor of the meat instead of masking it.
