I got this recipe from I have not made it yet but I plan to soon. I tend to take recipes and turn them into "dump" recipes (put it all in a ziplock bag and freeze it for later use) and it looks like this one may also work!

This recipe was...ok. I followed the directions without making any changes. It tasted like it was missing something. Probably not something I would make again.

Wow!! Is this ever good!! The flavor is amazing and the chops were very tender. DH is a cilantro lover and was in heaven with every mouthful. Since it was a work day, I'll confess that I cooked it on low for 8 hours rather than on high as you directed. This could be served with typical rice and beans, in tortillas, or as we did with my Jalapeno Potatoes #162527. Thanks for a great recipe Renea'!
