You know those dishes that explode with flavor with every bite? Well, this dish is one of them! These Southwestern Pork Chops are a fave among the Mr. Food crowd and you'll love their zesty flavor and ease as much as we do.
What You'll Need:
- 4 (1/2-inch-thick) boneless pork chops
- 1/4 cup (1 ounce) shredded Mexican cheese blend
- 1/4 cup fine, dry breadcrumbs (store-bought)
- 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, rinsed and drained
- 1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro
- 1 tablespoon lime juice
What To Do:
- Place pork chops between two sheets of heavy-duty plastic wrap, and flatten to 1/4-inch thickness, using a meat mallet or rolling pin. Combine cheese and breadcrumbs. Dip pork chops in milk, and dredge in breadcrumb mixture.
- Brown chops in 1 tablespoon hot oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat 3 minutes on each side. Remove from skillet.
- Cook garlic and onion in remaining 1 tablespoon hot oil in skillet, stirring constantly, until tender. Stir in corn and cilantro. Cook 2 to 3 minutes, stirring often.
- Top with pork, and drizzle with lime juice. Cover and cook over medium heat 7 minutes or until pork is done.
We bet you're gonna want to try our Italian version of these tender pork chops, too! Just substitute 6-cheese Italian blend for Mexican, Italian-seasoned breadcrumbs for plain, fresh parsley for the cilantro, and lemon juice for the lime juice. Perfecto!

At first glance, you might think this is a rice dish, but it's actually a pasta side dish! Ya see, orzo is a small, rice-shaped pasta, that's often used interchangeably with rice. In our recipe for Orzo Mushroom Toss, we used orzo for its nuttier flavor, which goes great with the fresh mushrooms!
