Reviews for Tex-Mex Pork Chops
"I really enjoyed this meal. I've made it 3 times now and it just gets better each time I make it."
"Yum! Can't complain about this one!~ Theresa"
"(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."
