5-Ingredient Grilled Pork Chops with Corn Salsa Recipe Makes It So Easy to Wow

Smoky, savory and zesty, this flavorful dinner takes just 15 minutes to prep!

Grilling pork chops gives them so much savory, smoky flavor. In fact, it’s one of our favorite ways to prepare them. For this grilled pork chops with corn salsa recipe, we took the chops up a notch by adding a summery, zesty topping made with grilled corn and store-bought Pico de Gallo. The best part? This dish requires just 15 minutes of prep, making it perfect for both busy weeknight dinners and weekend gatherings! Give it a try and leave us a comment below. 

Smart swap: Don’t have corn on hand? No problem! Simply sub in red bell peppers for crunch and flavor. To do, core and seed three peppers, then cut each one into four pieces. Brush each piece with olive oil and grill the vegetables, turning occasionally, until tender, about 4 minutes per side. Let the peppers cool slightly, dice them finely and add to the Pico de Gallo.

  • 1 (16 oz.) pkg. pico de gallo
  • 2 tsp. garlic powder
  • 6 (1/4” thick) bone-in pork loin chops

Grill, flipping once, until slightly pink in centers, 5–7 min. per side. Transfer to platter; let rest 5 min. Top with some of corn salsa; serve with remaining salsa.
