- Cut your pork chops into 1x1x1 cubes and sprinkle generously with your spice mix.
- In a large skillet, add a little Olive oil and cook your pork on medium-high heat, stirring occasionally to keep it from sticking
- While your pork chops are cooking, dice up your vegetables.
- After the pork chops are finished (10-12 minutes), remove them from the pan and put the onions and peppers in the pan with a teaspoon of olive oil. Sprinkle some cajun seasoning on them as they cook (3-5 minutes).
- The rice should be done, so strain any remaining water from the rice and combine the rice, veggies, tomatoes, and pork into the large skillet. Cook and stir for about 3 minutes.
- Now scoop some onto your plate and you are ready to serve.
