Spicy Smothered Pork Chops

Do you ever look in the fridge and say, "what the heck can I make with this?" That's what I did tonight- I had garden vegs: cubanelle peppers, 1 cherry pepper, 1 shallot, 1 vidalia onion (not from garden), zuchini and 2 potatoes. Oh, and 4 boneless pork chops. The result is spicy smothered pork chops.
*Note- with the cherry pepper this is very spicy, if you don't want it too spicy you can omit it or just add 1/2 of one. I used a tiny pepper and it was very spicy!

 Cut all the vegs in chunks. Peel and grate or dice the potatoes. Saute the vegs (except zuchini and potatoes) in olive oil. Remove and add pork chops, season both sides with 1/4 tsp cumin, salt, garlic pepper (from the grinder), 1/2 tsp paprika and 1/2 tsp garlic powder. Brown pork and remove. Add potatoes and zuchini, saute for a few min and add rest of vegs. Top with pork and cover. Bake in oven at 375 for 20 min, until pork and potatoes are done. Ill take a pic if hubby doesn't eat it as soon as it's done.
