Creamy Salsa Pork Chops

Remember Creamy Salsa Skillet Chicken?   Well if you go to Costco and have a huge amount of really thick pork chops on your hands, you could make this instead.

I took each mega-thick chop and sliced it in half vertically to make two thinner chops.  That makes for a more reasonable serving and it stretches your grocery dollar too.

As usual, you can spice it up and down as much as you'd like to please your palates.

I served this over refried beans and added some avocado to give it color.

Creamy Salsa Pork Chops
makes 4 servings

4 boneless pork chops
2 tablespoons olive oil
1/2 onion, diced
1/2 cup salsa
1/4 cup Greek yogurt (can sub sour cream) 
1/2 cup of shredded cheese, Mexican blend
dried oregano

Heat oil in large skillet over medium high heat and saute the pork for about 5 minutes on each side.

Remove the pork from the pan, (add more oil if needed) and saute the onions until soft.  Turn down the heat, then stir in the salsa and the yogurt and warm through, then add the meat back in and make sure the chops get all that nice creamy salsa sauce all over it.

Sprinkle the cheese over the chops and cover until cheese is melted.

Top with a dash of oregano for flavor and a touch of color.
