Pork Peep Chops

6 pork chops, about 1/2 inch thick 3 Tablespoons red wine vinegar, divided 2 tomatoes, chopped, about 1 1/2 cups 1/4 cup frozen chopped onion and green pepper mix 1 package stuffing mix for pork 1/4 cup margarine, melted 1 cup hot water 6 Peeps Cover shallow baking pan with foil for easy cleanup. Spray foil with non-stick spray. Using 2 tablespoons of vinegar, brush both sides of chops. Sprinkle both sides with salt and pepper. Using kitchen shears, snip the top 1/3 of the Peeps off, reserving the heads. Snip the bodies into dice size pieces. In a large bowl, mix the chopped Peep pieces, 1 tablespoon vinegar and all of the remaining ingredients. Stir until mixed, then form into 6 burger shaped patties about 1/2 inch thick. Place stuffing patties on top of pork chops. Make a tent of foil, cover loosely and bake 1 hour. Uncover and bake 30 minutes more. Remove from oven. Brush the Peep heads with hot pepper sauce and place one on top of each stuffed chop. Arrange on serving platter and be ready for smiles! Note: The tanginess of the tomatoes, vinegar and hot pepper sauce is a perfect compliment to the sweetness of the Peeps.
