Big and bold, tender and juicy, these pork tenderloins get a dose of sultry Southwestern flavor from smoky adobo sauce and canned chipotle chiles.
Updated May 13, 2010

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup taco sauce
  • 3 tablespoons honey
  • 2 chipotle chiles in adobo sauce (from 7 or 11-oz. can), chopped
  • 2 teaspoons adobo sauce (from can of chipotle chiles)
  • 2 (3/4 to 1-lb.) pork tenderloins
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh cilantro

Steps

  • 1
    Heat gas or charcoal grill. In small saucepan, combine taco sauce, honey, chiles and adobo sauce; mix well. Brush pork tenderloins with oil. Sprinkle with salt and pepper.

    When grill is heated, place pork on gas grill over medium heat or on charcoal grill 4 to 6 inches from medium coals. Cook 13 to 15 minutes or until thermometer inserted in center registers 155°F., turning pork once and brushing with taco sauce mixture during last 10 minutes of cooking time. Let stand 10 minutes or until thermometer registers 160°F.

    Bring any remaining taco sauce mixture to a boil. Slice pork; sprinkle with cilantro. Serve sauce with pork.

Tips from the Betty Crocker Kitchens

  • tip 1
    Pork tenderloin is a lean piece of pork cut from the loin. Because this cut contains little fat to moisten it during cooking, pork tenderloin benefits from a glaze or marinade.
  • tip 2
    To reduce spiciness, use only 1 chipotle chile and omit the adobo sauce.
  • tip 3
    To broil pork tenderloins, place on broiler pan; broil 4 to 6 inches from heat using times above as a guide, turning occasionally and brushing with taco sauce mixture during last 10 minutes of cooking time.
