Did I ever share with you that I love cooking dinner for my family, but I am not a fan of meals that will have me spending hours in the kitchen or using a bunch of ingredients.
I also have to admit that I can fall into a bit of a food rut and sometimes that especially applies to the meals that I prepare for my family. I mean spaghetti and baked chicken are both great meals, but I do not want to have them every week. To come up with new dishes, I have to find creative ways to make the protein something new, but still full of flavor.
That is where these Peachy Salsa Pork Chops really come in handy.
What is needed to make Peach Salsa Pork Chops?
- Boneless pork chops
- Taco seasoning
- Olive oil
- Pace® Chunky Salsa Medium
- Peach preserves
You start by picking up some pork chops from your grocery store meat department and grabbing a package of taco seasoning. I use the original flavor, but feel free to use the spicy if you want an extra hint of spice.
Next, to complete the recipe you will also need peach preserves and a jar of your favorite chunky salsa. For the salsa, I used Pace Chunky Medium Salsa which I was able to get for a low price at my local Walmart. Pace has a bold kick of flavor with big chunks of tomato, crisp onions, and hand-picked jalapenos.
Can you see where we are going with this?
The taco seasoning and salsa will make the pork chops spicy and the peach preserves will add a little bit of sweetness. The peach preserves will also help to balance out the tangy flavor of the salsa and make the sauce smooth.
How to Make Peach Preserve and Salsa Pork Chops:
The recipe begins by adding the taco seasoning and pork chops into a plastic ziplock bag. Close the bag and gently shake to evenly distribute the seasoning on the meat.
Heat the olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the pork chops and cook for 2 to 3 minutes. Turn the pork chops over and cook on the other side for an additional 2 minutes. Remove the pork from the skillet and set aside. To the same heated skillet, add the peach preserves and Pace chunky salsa. Stir to combine.
Once the sauce has heated thoroughly for a few minutes, add the seasoned pork chops back into the skillet. Cover and reduce the heat to low and cook for an additional 10 minutes. Serve over rice with your favorite vegetable on the side.
Walmart's low prices help me save money on meals that I prepare for my family. If you want to grab some Pace Chunky Salsa, look for it at Walmart. With Walmart's online grocery pickup & delivery, you can also save time and energy on shopping while still getting everyday low prices.
