In a skillet over medium heat, warm oil. Brown pork chops for 2 to 3 minutes per side. Set aside on paper towels to drain. (The chops will not be fully cooked at this point.)
In same pan, add Spanish rice and butter. Cook over medium heat, stirring frequently, until rice is golden brown.
Stir in 2 cups of water and special seasoning packet from rice box. Add remaining ingredients and stir to incorporate. Lay chops on top of rice and bring to a boil. Cover and simmer for 30 minutes, or until liquid is absorbed and chops are tender.
Serving suggestion: Sprinkle with your favorite cheese or add a sauce (such as adobo sauce) for extra flavor.
