    My pork chops were thicker, so took quite a bit longer to cook. The salsa was a nice touch.

    This sounds absolutely incredible, but I have a question for other readers. I don't cook much and I don't fry anything. Do you think it would work if I took a jar of Salsa, a small can of chicken broth and the taco seasoning and mixed them all together, put it in a crockpot, add the pork chops and cook on low overnight?

    These are wonderful! After browning, I add a touch of water to the pan and let them simmer a bit until they're done. One of our favorites.
