Southwest Pork Chop Foil Packs

So, it has be over a year since I last posted.  Life is busy!  My boys are growing up TOO fast!  And this blog has gone to the end of the list of 'things to do'.  But I have a few new FAVORITE recipes that I have found that I need to share!

I found this recipe over on Pillsbury's website.  My family LOVES it!!  Even my youngest, pickiest eater eats it all gone!  It is a perfect summer recipe that you can cook on the grill, so that you don't heat up your house.

I know my pictures are terrible, so if you want to see good pictures...go to Pillsbury's website.  They even have step-by-step pictures :)

Southwest Pork Chop Foil Packs

1 can(15 oz) black beans, drained, rinsed
1 1/2 cups frozen sweet corn, thawed
1/2 cup salsa verde
2 teaspoons chili powder
1 teaspoon ground cumin
4 boneless pork chops (5 to 7 oz each), 3/ to 1 inch thick
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 cup shredded pepper jack cheese
lime wedges, if desired
avocado, if desired

Directions:  Heat gas or charcoal grill. Cut 4 (18x12-inch) sheets of heavy-duty foil. Spray with cooking spray.

In small bowl, mix black beans, frozen corn, salsa verde, chili powder and cumin. Sprinkle pork chops with salt; place 1 on center of each sheet of foil. Dividing evenly, spoon about 3/4 cup bean mixture around and on top of each pork chop. Top each pork chop with 1/4 cup shredded cheese.

Bring up 2 sides foil so edges meet. Seal edges, making tight 1/2-inch fold; fold again, allowing space for heat circulation and expansion. Fold other sides to seal.

Place packs on grill over medium heat. Cover grill; cook 10 minutes. Rotate packs 1/2 turn; cook 5 to 8 minutes longer or until pork is no longer pink and meat thermometer inserted in center reads at least 145°F. Remove packs from grill. Carefully fold back foil. Garnish with lime slices.  And...we like to add avocado...mmmm!!

**To make in oven, place packs on cookie sheet. Bake at 375°F 30 to 35 minutes or until pork is no longer pink and meat thermometer inserted in center reads at least 145°F.

I hope you enjoy these as much as my family does :)

  1. Hi, may I replace some items. I for example do not have a grill, but there is a BBQ in the yard, and I do not have a rotisserie oven but there is a microwave oven. What do you say? Because it looks very appetizing.


THANKS for visiting!!
