Fiesta Pork Chop and Rice Bake Recipe

We eat a lot of chicken in our house and this is a recipe that I have made with chicken before, but I had some pork chops in the freezer and it was even better than the chicken! My kids gobbled it up (which means it’s an instant win in my book!) and my husband couldn’t stop raving. Delicious family dinner= check!

  • 6-7 pork chops (I used boneless chops that were about 1/2" thick)
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 (14 oz) can chicken broth
  • 1 (8 oz) can tomato sauce
  • 1 (4 oz) can diced green chilis
  • 1 (1 oz) packet taco seasoning
  • 1 cup uncooked long grain rice
  • 1/2 cup onion, diced
  • 1 medium green bell pepper, chopped
  • 1 medium red bell pepper, chopped
  • 1/2 cup colby jack cheese


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Sprinkle pork chops with salt and pepper. In a large skillet, heat olive oil over medium high heat and brown pork chops (about 2-3 minutes each side, turning once).
  3. Spray a 13x9" baking pan with non-stick cooking spray and pour the chicken broth, tomato sauce, green chilis, taco seasoning, uncooked rice, and onion; mix together until completely incorporated. Place the pork chops on top of the rice mixture and top with the green and red peppers. Cover with aluminum foil and cook for about 60 minutes or until the rice is tender.
  4. Remove from oven and top with cheese. Let the cheese melt for a couple of minutes and then enjoy!

  1. I made this the other night with some leftover shredded pork and organic brown rice. Excellent! It did take about twice as long as the recipe states to cook the rice, and I did not use a taco seasoning packet to avoid any yucky stuff and just used my own spices. Will make again :). Thanks!

    I made this tonight for dinner and it was a hit. Everyone eat it and liked it. I also made your quick ambrosia salad it was also great. I made my grocery list this week from only Six Sisters recipes. So far so good. I did add and subtract some things, I left off peppers from pork chops and added sliced avocado and tomatoes. I also added strawberries and pecan to the fruit salad. I will be making it again. I'm thinking the fruit salad for a quick breakfast before my son goes to school in the mornings. Six Sisters is my new addiction.
  3. I have never tried one of your recipes that I didn't love and my entire family which consists of many people. Making the fiesta pork chop and rice bake tonight if it tastes as good as it looks worse so thank you so much for the recipe
