Mexican Pork Chops

I know, I said the old blog would be down today.  I got so excited about my new layout, I just had to go ahead and apply it!  I hope you like it.

Oh, it has been so nice in Texas the past week!  We are actually feeling up to eating again.  Last night, we had a recipe I've had for so long.  I think I originally found it on, could have been AllRecipes.  I'm really not sure!

Mexican Pork Chops


8 boneless pork chops
2 cups brown rice, uncooked
2 cans pinto beans, drained
2 cans whole kernel corn, drained
1 can Rotel tomatoes, drained
1 can stewed tomatoes, in juice
1-2 tbs oil
salt and pepper


Preheat oven to 350˚.  In a big skillet, heat oil.  Salt and pepper pork chops to taste, then brown them on both sides, set aside.  Stir in undrained tomatoes, Rotel, beans, corn and rice, bring to a boil and cook for 1 minute.  Transfer rice mixture in to a baking dish.  Arrange pork chops on top and bake covered for 30 minutes.  Uncover, and bake for 10 minutes more.

I had honestly forgotten how great this recipe is!  If you ask my kids, the rice should be made without the tomatoes.  I hope you'll try them one night.  

Happy Thursday!


  1. WOW! Love your new look! Seriously, so cute! Your recipe looks easy and tasty ... I would add the tomatoes personally :)

  2. Thanks, Jamie! And yes, I don't think it would be worth eating without the maters. :D

    1. Agreed :) Thank you for sharing this at All My Bloggy Friends last week. I can't wait to see what you share this tomorrow!

  3. This looks pretty good. I am not a huge fan of pork chops but when prepared the right way, they taste great! I will have to try this one day. Thanks for sharing on Marvelous Mondays!

    1. Hi, Julie! Thanks! I have to say the rice, beans, corn and tomatoes could be a meal on their own.

  4. Oh Yum! I love Mexican anything and pork chops too. This sounds and looks mucho grande! =) Thanks for linking up at Weekend Potluck. Please come again soon.

  5. Delicious! I love your recipe for Mexican Pork Chops! So many great flavours in this dish!
