Grilled Chipotle Pork Tenderloin Fajita Plates
with Zucchini & Sweet Peppers over Avocado Purée
Your home barbecue is a hot spot this week—it’s where everyone wants to be while these tortilla-free fajitas are sizzling. Commit to a pleasingly piquant pork tenderloin, liberally sprinkled with our Mexican Moments blend (with chilies leading the spice pack) and brushed with chopped chipotle pepper (including the adobo sauce). Lay down a layer of avocado purée, mount the sliced pork with grilled zucchini and sweet peppers on top, and put a shot of sour cream soother on the side.
We will send you:
Pork tenderloin (high-protein serving)
Lime (or lemon)
Chipotle pepper in adobo
Mexican Moments spices (salt, chili powder, garlic, sugar, paprika, coriander seeds, black pepper, cumin, onion, oregano, lime oil)
Contains: Milk, Sulphites
You will need:
Salt & pepper
Grill pan (or BBQ)
Mise en place
Heat the BBQ on high, making sure to oil the grill first. Quarter the lime. Finely chop the chipotle pepper with the sauce. Quarter the zucchini lengthwise.
Prepare the pork & vegetables
Pat the pork dry with paper towel; season with ½ the spices and S&P. In a large bowl, drizzle the zucchini and sweet peppers with oil; season with the remaining spices and S&P.
Grill the pork & vegetables
Grill the pork on the BBQ (or in a grill pan heated with a drizzle of oil on medium), 10 to 12 min., flipping at least twice, to ensure an even sear, until partially cooked. Reserving the bowl, add the sweet peppers and zucchini; grill 5 to 6 min., until the vegetables are nicely browned and the pork* is cooked through. Transfer the vegetables to the reserved bowl and the pork to a cutting board. Brush the chipotle pepper in adobo (add ½ for medium spicy) on the pork. Let rest for 5 min. before slicing against the grain.
Finish & serve
In a small bowl, add the sour cream; season with S&P. Divide the avocado purée between your plates and spread out in a circular motion. Top with the vegetables and pork. Garnish with the lime wedges. Serve the sour cream on the side. Bon appétit!
*Health Canada recommends cooking pork to a minimum internal temperature of 71°C.
