This was plum ridiculous. It’s bursting with flavor and super easy to make. If you like jalapeno poppers and pork chops, you get the best of both worlds here. You are going to want to save this one and make it STAT!
- 1 block softened full fat cream cheese
- 1/2 cup bacon crumbles
- 4 or 5 fresh jalapenos
- Seasonings of choice
- 6 center cut pork loin chops
Begin by preparing the stuffing. In a large mixing bowl, add the cream cheese, bacon and jalapenos. Mix well until combined.
Now it’s time to prepare your pork chops. Begin by slicing a pocket on each one of the chops. Be careful not to cut all the way to the bottom and not too far on the sides. This way, all the stuffing will stay inside.
Using a spoon, pack each one of the pork chops with filling. Start with 1 spoonful in each and then keep adding until you are out of stuffing. You may have to use your thumb to pack it on in there! Use a toothpick across the top to close as best as you can.
Hit wach pork chop with some avocado spray and season to your liking. Don’t be afraid to season here!
Place your chops into the air fryer or oven, standing up. This will ensure all of your stuffing will stay inside during the cooking process. Air fry/bake at 400 degrees for about 17 minutes or you hit a minimum temp of 145 degrees. Remove and rest a few minutes.
Plate and enjoy!
