3/4 teaspoon chili powder
1 pound pork tenderloin
Smart Balance® Buttery Burst Spray
1/3 cup Smart Balance® Light Mayonnaise Dressing
1/3-1/2 cup Smart Balance® Fat Free Milk and Omega-3s
1 chipotle chili pepper, minced
2 teaspoons adobo sauce (the sauce the peppers are packed in)
1/4 teaspoon salt
Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F.
Sprinkle the chili powder evenly on the tenderloin and lightly sprinkle with salt and pepper, if desired. Press the seasonings onto the pork to allow seasonings to adhere. Heat a large nonstick skillet over medium high heat until hot. Coat the skillet with buttery spray, cook the pork 3 minutes, turn and cook 2 minutes or until richly browned.
Place the pork on a baking sheet, cook 15 to 17 minutes or until the pork reaches internal temperature of 155 degrees F when tested with a meat thermometer. Let stand on baking sheet 5 minutes before thinly slicing.
Meanwhile, whisk together the sauce ingredients in a small saucepan, cook over medium heat until warm, do not boil. Pour sauce onto a serving platter, arrange the pork slices on top of the sauce.
For additional flavor, add any accumulated meat juices from the baking sheet to the sauce.
Makes 12 ounces cooked pork and 1/2 cup sauce total. Serves 4; 3 ounces cooked pork and 2 tablespoons sauce per serving.
