       With the addition of frozen peas this makes another, easy skillet dinner for a busy week.

Pork Chops with Spanish Rice 

Total time: 40 minutes
   I use brown rice in this dish.  Mine cooks in 20 minutes and I like the healthy aspect and nutty flavor of brown rice.  You could substitute Basmati, Arborio, or plain white rice
