Cheesy, zesty, and oh-so-tender, our Southwestern Pork Chops are a skillet-friendly way to enjoy dinnertime.

What You'll Need

  • 4 (1/2-inch-thick) boneless pork chops
  • Salt for sprinkling
  • Black pepper for sprinkling
  • 1/2 cup bread crumbs
  • 2 tablespoons milk
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil, divided
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 small onion, chopped
  • 2 (15-1/4-ounce) cans whole kernel corn with red and green peppers, drained
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro
  • 1/2 cup shredded Mexican cheese blend
  • 1 tablespoon lime juice

What to Do

  1. Place pork chops between two sheets of plastic wrap or plastic storage bags and using a meat mallet or rolling pin, flatten to 1/4-inch thickness. Sprinkle pork chops with salt and pepper. Place bread crumbs in a shallow dish. Dip chops in milk, and dredge in bread crumbs, patting on the breading until both sides are breaded evenly.
  2. In a large skillet over medium heat, heat 1 tablespoon oil until hot. Cook pork chops, in batches, 3 to 4 minutes per side or until golden brown. Remove from skillet to a plate.
  3. In the same skillet over medium heat, heat remaining 1 tablespoon oil until hot. Add garlic and onion, stirring constantly until tender. Stir in corn and cilantro. Cook 3 to 4 minutes or until heated through.
  4. Place pork chops on top of corn, and sprinkle with cheese. Cover and cook over medium heat 5 minutes or until cheese is melted. Drizzle with lime juice and serve.

This looks excellent. If you don't flatten the chops, would you just cook them longer? Thank you.

Hi there! Yes, just cook these a bit longer if you choose not to flatten them. :)
