  • In a cast iron skillet over medium high heat, add 1 tablespoon olive oil. Season the pork chops generously with salt and freshly ground pepper. Once pan is hot, add the pork chops and cook 3 to 4 minutes per side. Set aside to rest.

  • In another skillet over medium high heat, add the remaining tablespoon olive oil. Add the onion and mushrooms and cook until mushrooms begin to crisp. Add the corn and jalapeno and season with salt, pepper, crushed red pepper flakes, and lime zest. Cook 2 minutes and then deglaze the pan with water.
