    Sandy in Houston's Note:

    I make this because we love the taste of the rice but the chops are nice too. They come out tender and juicy.

      I've used this recipe with pork chops and with chicken thighs. Both were great. With the chicken I did add a Tablespoon of dry taco seasoning to spice it up a little. Thanks Sandy

      Both DH and I thought this was an average tasting dish. It seem to lack the kick I was looking for. I did us a medium hot salsa. The pineapple did add a nice sweet taste to it. I'm not sure what it is missing. It needs either cumin or coriander, but you do need to add some salt. I have made a note to myself that next time to spice it up a bit and to use hot salsa. Thanks Sandy for posting.
