      First off, the rice and beans with kalamata olives is a fantastic combination. The olives look kind of like the beans, so every time one ends up in my mouth, it is a magnificent, tasty surprise. However, the pork chops were very dry and not that flavorful. Perhaps I overcooked them, but I used the recommended amount of time. I'm not a big fan of pork, anyway, so I think I will keep making this and just skip the pork, because the rest of it is incredibly delicious!

      We really enjoyed these chops, rice and beans along with a Mexican corn dish. We will definatly be making this one again sometime. I made using Jasmine rice instead of the basmati, and left out the cilantro and added 1 tsp. cumin instead. It's a keeper!
