These Spicy Tex/Mex Skillet Pork Chops can be a little to spicy for some! But you can prepare them to suit your taste.

Spicy Tex/Mex Skillet Pork Chops

If you prefer a milder dish, use regular chili powder; if firey is more your style, use hot chili powder.

Whether you make it hot and spicy or mild the dish has a nice Tex-Mex style to it.

A nice weeknight meal with very little prep involved and so easy to make.

I like to serve Perfect Restaurant Style Mexican Rice as a side. Great combo!
