Southwestern Pork ChopsThis simple, easy to make recipe was an instant hit with my family! Tomato based salsa adds a spicy Southwestern flavor without a lot of chopping.

Cooking spray
4 (4 oz each) lean boneless pork loin chops, fat trimmed
1/2 cup salsa of your choice
2 tablespoons lime or lemon juice
2 teaspoons dried parsley flakes
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon black pepper

Coat a large skillet with cooking spray; place over high heat until hot. Flatten chops slightly by pressing with the palm of your hand. Add chops to skillet; cook 1 minute on each side or until browned. Reduce heat to medium-low.

Combine salsa and lime or lemon juice, parsley flakes, salt and pepper; pour over the chops. Simmer, uncovered for 8 minutes or until the chops are done. Makes 4 servings, each containing 1.4 grams net carbohydrate.
