This special pork dish has a zesty flair and is a snap to prepare. A sweet fruity salsa balances perfectly with the spicy rub that coats the pan-fried chops.—Bonnie Bufford, Nicholson, Pennsylvania

Ingredients

  • 1 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground coriander
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1/4 teaspoon paprika
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon pepper
  • 2 boneless pork loin chops (4 ounces each)
  • 1 teaspoon olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons salsa
  • 1 tablespoon apricot spreadable fruit
  • 1 cup sliced peeled nectarines or peaches
  • 1 tablespoon minced fresh cilantro
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons minced fresh oregano or 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano

Directions

  1. In a small bowl, combine the first six ingredients. Rub over both sides of pork chops. In a small nonstick skillet coated with cooking spray, cook pork chops in oil over medium-high heat for 5-6 minutes on each side or until juices run clear. Remove to a serving platter and keep warm.
  2. In the same skillet, combine salsa and spreadable fruit. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat; cook and stir over medium heat for 1 minute. Stir in the nectarines, cilantro and oregano; cook 2-3 minutes longer or until heated through. Serve with pork.
