These Pork Chops with Mango Salsa are juicy and full of flavor. Mango salsa pairs perfectly with pork for a quick and easy weeknight dinner.



For the Mango Salsa

  • 1 mango, peeled, cored and diced
  • 2 tablespoons red onion, diced
  • 2 tablespoons fresh cilantro, chopped
  • 1/2 jalapeño, seeds and membranes removed, minced
  • juice of 1/2 lime
  • sea salt, to taste

For the Pork Chops

  • 4 thin bone-in pork chops, about 1 pound
  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon paprika
  • pinch of cayenne (optional)
  • salt and pepper, to taste
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil


  1. Prepare the mango salsa by tossing all the ingredients together in a medium bowl. Set aside
  2. Pat the pork chops dry with a paper towel. Season the pork chops with garlic powder, paprika, and cayenne. Lightly season with salt and pepper. Sprinkle with flour and shake off any excess.
  3. Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Place the pork chops in the skillet and cook for 3-4 minutes on each side, depending on how thick your pork chops are, until cooked through. Remove from heat and let rest for 3 minutes on a serving plate.
  4. Top with mango salsa, serve, and enjoy!


You can substitute boneless pork chops for the bone-in pork chops.

Cook the pork chops to an internal temperature of 145°F and let them rest for 3 minutes before serving, as per the FDA recommendations.
