Rated 1 out of 5 by from I tried the recipe below. I tried the recipe below. YUUUUUUCK! Neither I nor my husband liked it! Meat was done but too tough. I always oven bake my pork chops till the're fall apart tender. I've never had any luck with frying pork chops. The mac and cheese was good, but too spicy. It didn't need a whole green pepper. It didn't need any green pepper. There was already green pepper in the salsa I used. I might make the mac and cheese again by itself to see if I can get it less spicy.

Great recipe, I didn't have velveeta shells and cheese so I used Kraft deluxe Mac & cheese and I made it separately, I just added the salsa and red pepper at the end. I seasoned the pork chop with salt and fiesta lime seasoning and it tasted great. My husband really enjoyed it too.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Ah-mazing! Ah-mazing! I made this for my boyfriend and he loved it. The sauce was delicious and rich and tasted a little bit like the queso dip you buy in a jar; I added a dallop of sour cream to the top before serving. Only thing I'd change next time--season the pork chops!

This recipe was both! After frying the pork chops, I seasoned them with a bit of pepper while I fixed the mac & cheese. Everything came out great. I will definitely fix this again.
