Scale
  • 2 (3/4-inch thick) bone-in pork chops (about 1 pound)

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 425°F.
  2. Season pork chops with mesquite seasoning and place in an cast iron skillet.
  3. Combine cheese, onions, bacon, mayonnaise and adobo sauce. Spread cheese mixture evenly over pork chops.
  4. Place on the middle rack of your oven and bake for 8-9 minutes.
  5. Switch to broil and broil for 2-3 minutes or until pork is browned and the internal temperature reaches 145°F.

Notes

This recipe can be easily made for 4 servings by doubling the amount of the ingredients. Instead of using a cast iron skillet, prepare a baking sheet by lining it with aluminum foil for baking the pork chops.
