Quick and Easy Mexican Pork Chops

Mexican Pork Chops are quick and easy to make and only use four ingredients!

Mexican Pork Chops

I recently posted on my Facebook page that I do not have many pork chop recipes on my site because they do to photograph well.

The above picture proves that, as does the hundred or so other pictures of pork chops that I have taken in the past. The picture is better than many, but still not great. Pork chops are delicious, but not photogenic.

We raise hogs, so I have many good pork chop recipes that I would love to share. And today I decided to ignore the fact that pork chops are not photogenic and I am posting a pork chop recipe anyway, because it is a really good recipe.

In fact, this is one of my husband’s favorite ways to eat pork chops. We eat these all the time.

The salsa and cumin give these pork chops a nice Mexican flavor and you can vary the spiciness by using different salsa.

I enjoy these because they are quick and easy. I think we all need more recipes that include only four ingredients.

  1. Those look so good. I like the “fancier” pork chops like that but not everyone in my house does so we normally stick to salt and peppered chops with country gravy.

  2. Thank you for posting your recipe, despite the pork chop’s inability to photograph well. I have a very small arsenal of recipes for it, so I usually don’t cook with them very often. I look forward to reading and trying your pork chop recipes!

  3. My pork chops are always boring, so I am definitely bookmarking this recipe. Thanks Lynn!

    We love pork chops and this is a simple way to make them!! But, it looks very tasty and I’m sure my family would like it.

  5. Honestly? That looks positively scrumptious =) Definitely a recipe to try one of these nights.

  6. This sounds really good..but, could you tell me what step to use the onions? or am I missing something in the recipe? Do you cook them while browning the chops, or add them to the salsa? thanks

    My mom had two recepices that I LOVED growing up when she made pork chops. She would take a couple of cans of stewed tomatoes with a can of tomatoe paste and put chopped onions. She would cook it in the oven but i have done it on the stove top. They are really good.

    Another one that is not so healthy is she would brown them and put them in the oven with cream of chicken soup. LLLLLLLOOOOOOOOOVVVVVVVEEEEEEE it. Mind you i havent had those in a LONG while since I am trying not to weigh a thousand pounds !

    Thanks for your site. I visit everyday and have used some of your recipes !


  8. do not have many pork chop recipes on my site because they do to photograph well. Yep, I certainly agree with that!

    Pork is really cheap in Portugal and it’s good quality…so I try lots of dishes…but can I photograph them for my blog? No.

    The ingredients in this recipe sound great and to be honest the picture is not that bad :)

    We have lots of deer in our freezer so I think I will try this with deer cube.

  12. I had one recipe I enjoyed with pork chops (with a cheese sauce) until I modified the recipe with salsa. Plus, rather than doing it on the stove, I baked it in the oven. It’s basically a cheese sauce with salsa. The family enjoyed it–and it was easier than the other recipe. I may add cumin next time. Thanks for the recipe.

  13. I made these and made a few changes. I didn’t have cumin, so I substituted chili powder, and added garlic powder and taco seasoning to the salsa. Ain my opinioin, there is no way you need to cook these for an hour. I did mine for 30 minutes and they were perfect.

    • I am glad that you enjoyed them. This cooking time will probably vary depending on the thickness and size of the chops, but I am glad that 30 minutes worked well for you.
