Chipotle Pork Tenderloins

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.”

    Yowzers! Was that hot!It was good that we had the strawberry/avocado salsa to go with it, because it was screaming hot! The adobo chilis made this one wicked barbeque. Not sure if we'll make this one again, because not many people were able to eat this one and not need tissues!
