Ingredients

  • 2 pork tenderloins about 2.5 pounds
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons chili powder blend – I used a combination of ancho cayenne, garlic and Spanish paprika, but a nice Cajun blend is great
  • 2 cups Sweet and Savory Chili Sauce
  • 1/2 cup shredded Manchego cheese
  • Limes for serving

Instructions

  • Heat oven to 375 degrees.
  • Heat a large roasting pan to medium heat on the stove.
  • Drizzle the pork tenderloins with olive oil, then rub them down with your dry seasonings.
  • Sear the tenderloins a couple minutes per side to brown them up. This will help seal in the juiciness.
  • Pour in the Sweet and Savory Chili Sauce to cover the tenderloins. Use more if you’d like.
  • Transfer the roasting pan to the oven and bake for 18-20 minutes, or until the internal temperature of the pork reaches 145-150 degrees F.
  • Remove from heat and let rest a few minutes before slicing and serving.
  • Top with a bit of shredded Manchego chees and squeeze a bit of fresh lime juice over the top.

Notes

We served ours with some simple roasted Brussels Sprouts!
