Chipotle Pork Tenderloins Recipe

Chipotle Pork Tenderloins Recipe

From Priscilla Gilbert of Indian Harbour Beach, Florida: “This pork tenderloin beats all at a cookout! The recipe came from a family member and is such a treat. Fresh strawberries and avocado in the salsa help cool the tasty heat of the pork.”
