Pork chops with peppers



This is a very easy and very tasty pork dish. The brine from the jarred peppers really adds great flavor to this dish and the bell peppers make it appealing to look at. You can use any color combo for the peppers. When I make this dish my daughter likes to pick out the colors for the peppers (she went with red and green this time), it makes her feel like she is helping with dinner. Then she is all the more excited to sit down and enjoy her meal. Also when you make this dish you can use either hot or sweet jarred peppers. The hot peppers do not make this dish too spicy so don’t be afraid to try it if you usually stay away from spicier dishes. Enjoy!!

    I can't remember if I commented already and said "Welcome to Examiner," but I don't think I did. Glad to see we're getting some more Food & Drink action.
