Smoky Bacon Baked Pork Chops
2 (3/4-inch thick) bone-in pork chops (about 1 pound)

2 tablespoons green onion, sliced
2 tablespoons cooked bacon pieces
2 tablespoons light mayonnaise

Chopped green onion for garnishing
Preheat oven to 425°F.
Season pork chops with mesquite seasoning and place in an cast iron skillet.
Combine cheese, onions, bacon, mayonnaise and adobo sauce. Spread cheese mixture evenly over pork chops.
Place on the middle rack of your oven and bake for 8-9 minutes.
Switch to broil and broil for 2-3 minutes or until pork is browned and the internal temperature reaches 145°F.
