Ww Southwestern Pork Chops - 4 Pts.

"Out of an old 1998 WW cookbook called "15 Minute Cookbook" I have this marked as "great". If you don't care for the strong lemon like flavor of cilantro you can substitute parsley if you prefer. This is great served with black beans, pineapple wedges and fresh strawberries. Hope you enjoy!"

  1. This was super simple and really good. The lime juice was good with this and we squeezed a little more at the table. Thanks for sharing this nice recipe. Made for FYC tag.
  2. A great meal doesn't get much easier than this! I used homemade salsa (spicy) and the lime juice was a great addition, perfect with the pork. Served with some corn tortillas and a black bean salad I had made earlier in the day and dinner was on the table in 15 minutes. Thanks for sharing your recipe!
  3. I liked the zing of lime in this dish - very fresh tasting. I made 1.5 times the recipe and will freeze a couple of the chops for meals for my DFIL. I did have to cook the chops for 15 to 20 minutes and used parsley - we have a no cilantro house! LOL! Made for PRMR tag. Thanks TeresaS! :)
  4. Easy and yummy! I can't believe it's even a recipe considering how simple it is! I didn't have any lime juice, so used lemon instead and omitted the cilantro/parsley. It still turned out great. Thanks for sharing!
  5. Nice receipe. since i don't like pork, i used turkey steaks instead. The only other change i made was to put a slice of cheese (i know now ww ;) on top of mine.
