  • 4 loin pork chops, bone in (about 1-1/2 pounds total)
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 2/3 cup long-grain white rice
  • 1 can (14.5 ounces) jalapeno-flavored diced tomatoes
  • 2 medium sweet green peppers, halved, seeded and thinly sliced into strips
  • 1 cup shredded taco-blend cheese
Heat oven to 350 degrees F.
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.
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.
Bake in 350 degree F oven for 50 minutes or until rice is tender and most liquid has been absorbed. Remove foil from dish; sprinkle cheese over top. Bake until cheese melts, about 5 minutes. Let stand 10 minutes before serving. Makes 4 servings.
