 Hey guys! Happy Monday! Did you have a nice weekend?

I’m very excited to share today’s Chipotle Pork Tenderloin recipe with you!

Are you looking to add a new twist to your old recipe box? I’m consantly looking to incorporate new flavors into my every day and holiday cooking.


If you are a fan of Latin cuisine and bold flavors, you are going to love today’s recipe.

This dish is simple to make, requires some staple ingredients and is perfect to serve at a holiday dinner with the family.


Speaking of holidays, it is already mid November and I can’t believe how close to Thanksgiving and Christmas we are.

On my recent trip to Jewel Osco I got some La Morena® Chipotle Peppers in Adobo, they are located in the Hispanic aisle.


Since I was planning on making Chipotle Pork Tenderloin, I knew that these peppers and the sauce would work great.

By the way, I’ve noticed that my readers enjoy my pork recipes a lot. These One Pan Pork Chops With Balsamic Mushrooms and Onions, One Pan Pork and Leek and Tender Pork Kebabs are some of the most popular.


La Morena® peppers are trusted, high quality, ingredients you can depend on to create delicious meals that bring your friends and family together during this special holiday season.

La Morena® also offers other canned products like La Morena® Beans, La Morena® Chipotle Sauce, La Morena® Sliced Jalapeños and La Morena® Whole Jalapeños.


La Morena® is my go to brand, when it comes to canned chipotle and jalapeno peppers. Their products are high quality and always bring amazing flavors to my Latin inspired dishes.

Using La Morena®’s chipotle peppers in adobo, I made chipotle marinated oven roasted pork tenderloin. Juicy, spicy  and tender meat, that will look great at your holiday table.

I also made some Mexican brown rice, to serve the Chipotle Pork Tenderloin with. It is the perfect and effortless side dish for your Latin holiday menu. I used quick cooking rice and it only took me 20 minutes to prepare this rice.

If you are looking for easy ways to add new twists of flavor to your holiday meals, definitely check out La Morena®’s products.
