Valerie411 1y agoSo tasty!! Did not have taco seasoning so I added the spices I prefer- garlic powder, onion powder, cumin, red chile powder, salt and pepper. Came out great!

Epianolady 3y 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.

Czwhiz 3y agoGood base recipe. Might sauté green peppers and serve on the side.
subzerofrogi1 3y 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).
sarahjane3773 3y agoAdded onions and green chile, delicious
tamracj 3y agoyummy it was good easy to make
kathleennapoligillings 3y 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.
