Ingredients Nutrition


  1. For the Chops: In a small bowl, combine paprika, oregano, onion powder, pinch sugar, garlic powder, salt and black pepper. Sprinkle pork with spice mixture. Heat 1 teaspoon oil in a large nonstick skillet on medium-high, tilting skillet to coat bottom lightly and cook pork for 3 to 4 minutes per side or until slightly pink in center. Transfer pork to a serving platter; cover to keep warm.
  2. For the Maque Choux: To keep the mess down, wipe the skillet clean that the chops were cooked in or you can use different skillet. Melt the butter in a large skillet or saute pan over medium-high heat. Add the corn, onions, bell peppers, jalapeno, Cajun seasoning and salt; cook, stirring, until soft, for 10 minutes. Add the cream and cook for 2 minutes.
  3. Dish the cooked chops with a serving of maque choux on the side.
