What a terrific dish! We loved it! I didn't have frozen hash browns, so I used some pre-boiled russets that I diced. I also used more than 1 tsp. olive oil for browning the chops. Any that was left in the skillet I just poured over the casserole and put in the oven to bake. Also I didn't have monterey jack cheese, but cheddar was a fine substitute. This tastes so good; the potatoes took on a great smoky taste from the spices. The chops were tender and full of flavor. (I put garlic salt on my chops before sauteeing.) We enjoyed this dinner on a cold, rainy night with crusty bread and salad. Deeeeelicious!

With a houseful of young people last night, I was looking for something filling & inexpensive, but good. And this is. Not an exciting recipe, just very good comfort food. I used boneless pork ribs, cut into chunks (what I had on hand) and added some garlic to them. I also added diced green pepper for a little color, and cut the amount of chili powder by half (because my family isn't crazy about it) - but I would use the full amount next time and also add a little salt. We enjoyed it (and finished off the leftovers for breakfast) and definitely plan on making it a lot - thank you.

What a taste sensation!! Who would have thought to mix the very definition of comfort food ( pork chops, taters, corn ) together in one pan?? Very easy to put together. I was leary of putting cheese on pork chops but, OMG it was fantastic. Next time I am adding more cheese. I might even put some on the veggies before adding the chops.
