Mexican pork chops

4 pork chops trimmed of fat

1 tbsp. cooking oil

2 141/2 oz cans stewed tomatoes

1 8oz can whole kernel corn

1 8oz can Red kidney beans

1/2 cup long grain rice

1 4oz. can diced green chilies or 1 tsp chili powder

1/4 tsp salt

Hot pepper sauce~~

Brown pork chops in hot oil in a skillet. Remove meat from skillet and add undrained tomatoes, corn, kidney beans, rice, chili peppers or powder and salt- bring to a boil for about 1 minute.

Transfer mixture to a 12x7x2 in baking dish. Arrange chops on top. If desired sprinkle with salt and pepper- ( I put chili powder & Cumin on mine)

Bake Covered for 30 minutes at 350*. Uncover and bake about 10 minutes more or till rice is tender and pork is no longer pink.

Kick it up with as much hot sauce as you like :-)
