Tex-Mex breaded pork chops
A really simple recipe that livens up pork chops.
I make my own Tex-Mex mix / Taco mix but you can buy it in packet form in most supermarkets. I notice in the US (Walmart), you can even buy a 200g container of it! Be a while before that's available over here I guess. Anyway, I do prefer my own!
After I made these I went on a search for a commercial blend 'tex-mex taco mix' that was available in large quantities. I found Old India Taco Seasoning and was very pleased with the results.
