  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 2/3 cup long-grain white rice

  • 1 cup shredded taco-blend cheese

Make It

1. Heat oven to 350 degrees F.

2. Season pork chops with 1/4 teaspoon salt and 1/8 teaspoon pepper. In a large skillet, heat oil over medium-high heat. Add chops; cook until lightly browned, about 2 minutes per side. Remove skillet from heat.

3. Coat 2-1/2-quart oval baking dish with nonstick cooking spray. Add rice, tomatoes, 1 cup water and remaining salt and pepper; stir to combine. Place pork chops on rice mixture; scatter green pepper over top. Cover dish with foil.
