    Servings and Ingredients

    Serves 4
    ½ (8-oz.) pkg. Hy-Vee cream cheese, softened
    2 tbsp. plus 1/3 c. Frank's RedHot original hot sauce, divided
    2 tbsp. Hy-Vee ranch salad dressing
    2 clove(s) garlic, minced
    ¼ tsp. Hy-Vee crushed red pepper
    ¾ c. green onions, finely chopped; divided
    ½ c. Soirée blue cheese crumbles, divided
    ½ c. Hy-Vee shredded mozzarella cheese
    4 (1-to-1-1/4-lbs.) bone-in loin or rib pork chops, 1-1/2 to 1-3/4 inch thick
    1 tsp. Hy-Vee coarse-ground pepper
    ¼ c. Hy-Vee unsalted butter

    Things To Grab

    • Medium bowl
    • Charcoal or gas grill
    • Hy-Vee nonstick cooking spray
    • Heavy foil
    • Small saucepan


    1. Combine cream cheese, 2 tablespoons hot sauce, ranch dressing, garlic, and crushed red pepper in a medium bowl. Add 1/2 cup green onions, 1/4 cup blue cheese, and mozzarella cheese. Mix well until combined. 

    2. Make a pocket in each pork chop by cutting horizontally from fat side to almost bone or opposite side using a paring knife. Stuff cheese mixture into pockets. Refrigerate chops for 30 minutes. 

    3. Preheat a charcoal or gas grill with two grilling zones: direct grilling over high heat (400 degrees) and indirect grilling over medium heat (350 degrees). 

    4. Season chops with pepper; spray with nonstick spray. Place stuffed chops over direct heat. Grill 8 minutes, turning halfway through. Place chops on a sheet of heavy foil and move to indirect heat. Grill 14 to 16 minutes or until pork reaches 165 degrees, turning halfway through. Transfer chops to a platter. Loosely cover with foil and let rest 5 minutes. 

    5. For sauce: Heat remaining 1/3 cup hot sauce and butter in a small saucepan over medium-low heat until butter has melted. Serve over pork chops. Top with remaining 1/4 cup blue cheese crumbles and remaining 1/4 cup chopped green onions.
