I was inspired by a dish I saw over at Jenn’s Food Journey for spicy pork chops with a mango and pineapple salsa. I decided to use the blackened seasoning from my Blackened Flank Steak for the pork chops because I didn’t have time to marinate them. The spicy pork tasted fantastic with the sweet and spicy salsa. I used much less seasoning on the kid’s pork so it wasn’t too spicy for them but enough to give it flavor. My whole family, including my kids, loved this dish. Thanks for the inspiration, Jenn!
