Ingredients Nutrition

  • 4 pork loin chops, bone in (about 1-1/2 pounds total)
  • 12 teaspoon salt
  • 14 teaspoon black pepper
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 23 cup long-grain white rice
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 (14 1/2 ounce) can diced tomatoes, jalapeno-flavored
  • 2 medium sweet green peppers, halved, seeded and thinly sliced into strips
  • 1 cup cheese, taco-blend shredded


  1. Heat oven to 350°F.
  2. Season pork chops with 1/4 teaspoon salt and 1/8 teaspoon pepper. In a large skillet, heat oil over medium-high heat. Add chops; cook until lightly browned, about 2 minutes per side. Remove skillet from heat.
  3. Coat 2-1/2-quart oval baking dish with nonstick cooking spray. Add rice, tomatoes, 1 cup water and remaining salt and pepper; stir to combine. Place pork chops on rice mixture; scatter green pepper over top. Cover dish with foil.
