"This recipe is absolutely amazing!!! I did make some of the adjustments that Lorriecox suggested...I sautéed onions, green peppers, garlic, butter, and a few other seasonings and added that to the rice mixture, which I added Rotel tomatoes to instead of regular tomatoes. Also, I used pork medallions and boneless chops, and topped with a mixture of cheeses. My boyfriend and his sons all said it was amazing and can't wait for me to make it again!! "- Cjs2986

Epianolady 6 months agoI modified the recipe, added green peppers, onions and corn, and cooked the pork chops on top of the stove in the tomato mixture, then served over pasta. It is too hot for the oven this week! It came out good.

subzerofrogi1 7 months agoMy whole family loved it. Even my (Mexican born) husband and my picky eaters. :) instead of tomatoes I added a can of rotel and I used flavored rice instead of plain and I didn't cool it as long,(only about 45 minutes).

kathleennapoligillings 10 months agoI sauted some onions and added it to the to with the peppers. It was do good, but I think it could have cooked a little less. Will make again but will take out 10-15 mins earlier if the rice is cooked. Kids loved it too.

wildflower78045 1 year agoIt was pretty good fast and easy
Aolingh 1 year agoPretty tasty! And easy to throw together on a busy night! I added a can of pinto beans and seasoned the pork chops with chili powder before browning. Would also be great to add corn and black beans, as it seems to be a fairly versatile recipe. The taco seasoning was a bit much and not enough rice.
stepharriaga 1 year agoThis was amazingly good! Ive always had trouble with getting rice to the right texture and it came out perfect. However, next time i will be using less tomato sauce. On the pork chops i added chili powder and only pepper. DELICIOUS!
lorriecox 1 year agoI love this! I changed it a bit, though. I used 1/2 can of tomatoes instead of tomato sauce. I sautéed onions, garlic, and a bit of the green pepper and added it to the rice mixture before adding the pork chops. I mixed up Monterey Jack cheese with cheddar cheese. I also added chicken bouillon to the water. It was delicious!

ahorn 1 year agoWe love this recipe! We used chicken breasts instead of pork chops. We also used a tex mex blend of pre-shredded cheese. Super easy and so tasty.
