If you're looking for an easy weeknight dinner idea, these salsa verde pork chops are the answer. This recipe can be made quickly and it's delicious!

My mom was one of the best cooks in the world.  You have no idea how much I miss her home-cooked dinners sometimes.  As most of you know, I lost her in 2017 and while most of her recipes live on, it’s just not the same.  But as much as I loved her cooking, there were a few things she made that I just could not stand.  She made this horrible apricot chicken dish that I nicknamed “yucken” when I was a kid -and the name just sort of stuck. Another thing I just didn’t like when I was a kid were pork chops.  No matter how she made them, it took everything I had not to gag over every  bite.

Now that I’m an adult, I understand that it’s a texture issue, but as a kid I just thought pork chops were gross.  Speaking of being an adult, we all know that means you have to do things you don’t like sometimes and since I want my kids to at least TRY new foods, I made pork for dinner recently.  I ended up finding this recipe for Salsa Verde Pork Chops, so I made it.
