Chipotle Pork Tenderloin

This recipe definitely has a kick. If you like a little spice, this is great. You can lessen the amount of chipotle chili powder if you want to tone it down a bit, and add a bit more oil.

Recipe: Chipotle Pork Tenderloin

1 average-size pork tenderloin (mine was 2 small tenderloins–about 1.5 pounds total)

2 tsp garlic salt

1 tsp onion powder

2 TBSP chipotle chili powder (or less, depending on how spicy you like it)

2 TBSP olive oil

1/4 cup honey

Add all ingredients to a large Ziploc bag and smoosh (is that a word?) around until the meat is coated. Refrigerate for at least a 1/2 hour, turning over once. Preheat oven to 325 degrees and line the bottom of a broiler pan with foil. Place tenderloin on broiler pan, and baste with marinade, setting the rest aside. Bake in oven for about 10 minutes, flip over, baste with remaining marinade and cook for another 15-25 minutes, or until the internal temperature reaches 160 degrees. Remove from oven and let sit for about 10 minutes before carving.
