Spicy Taco Pork Chops!



These "Spicy Taco Pork Chops" take plain old boring chops and kick them up a notch or two, depending on your tastes.    You oven fry these and they turn out so moist and flavorful.   Here is what you will need for these:

6-8 boneless loin pork chops
4 Tbs. butter, melted
2 cups dry, unseasoned bread crumbs (I used Progresso)
1 cup Mexican cheese blend
1 envelope taco seasoning
1/4 tsp. garlic powder
1/4 tsp. black pepper
pinch of cayenne pepper (optional, depending on your taste for spiciness)

In a large Ziploc bag, mix the bread crumbs, cheese, taco mix and other seasonings until well blended.  Place the melted butter in a shallow dish and dip each chop in the butter to coat.

 Place two pork chops at a time in the Ziploc bag and shake to coat the chop on all sides.  Remove from bag and place on a baking sheet that you have place a sheet of foil on and sprayed liberally with nonstick spray.   I used the nonstick foil made by Reynolds Wrap for this.  It gives anything you 'oven fry' a nice crispy coating and does not allow it to stick.   When I finish coating all of the pork chops, I take the rest of the coating mixture and sort of sprinkle it on top of each pork chop for a little more 'crust'.  



Place in a preheated oven at 375 degrees for 40-45 minutes.  Do not turn them while they cook.  They will brown on both sides.  

That's it's!  Add some rice or potatoes and a green vegetable or salad and dinner is served!
 
Yummy!
