With Spanish-style flavors, these shoulder pork chops are baked to perfection with rice, peppers, and tomato sauce.

It's a one-dish meal that is perfect for a busy day family dinner. Just layer the ingredients in the baking dish and pop it in the oven.  For extra depth of flavor, brown the pork chops in a little oil in a skillet before placing them in the baking pan.

The casserole makes a nice meal with a tossed salad or fresh sliced tomatoes.
