Recipe Of The Week: Avocado Ranch Pork Chops and Rice


This week’s recipe is a great way to spruce up the pork chops that you have in the freezer right now! It comes from Campbell’s Soup and if you don’t have any in your cupboard, be sure to pick up a can of Cream Of Mushroom on your next trip to the store.

Prep Time: 5 Min
Total Time: 30 Min
Servings: 6


3 cups water
2 cups frozen seasoned Southwest vegetable blend (corn, peppers, onions)
1 envelope (1 ounce) ranch dressing mix
1 1/2 cups uncooked long grain white rice
6 boneless pork chop, 3/4-inch thick (about 2 pounds)
1 teaspoon chili powder
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 can (10 1/2 ounces) Campbell’s® Condensed Cream of Mushroom Soup or 98% Fat Free Cream of Mushroom Soup
3/4 cup milk
1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro
1 avocado, pitted, peeled and diced (about 1 cup)


Step 1

Heat the water, frozen vegetables and 1/2 package dressing mix in a 3-quart saucepan over medium-high heat to a boil. Stir in the rice. Reduce the heat to low. Cover and cook for 20 minutes or until the liquid is absorbed.

Step 2

While the rice is cooking, season the pork with the chili powder. Heat the oil in a 12-inch skillet over medium-high heat. Add the pork and cook until browned on both sides (make sure the skillet and oil are hot before adding the pork to prevent sticking). Stir the soup, milk and remaining 1/2 package dressing mix in the skillet and heat to a boil. Reduce the heat to low. Cover and cook for 10 minutes or until the pork is cooked through.

Step 3

Stir the cilantro into the hot cooked rice. Top the pork with the avocado and additional chopped cilantro, if desired. Serve the pork and sauce with the rice.
