Pico de Gallo Pork Loin
There's nothing like a slow cooked Mexican meal. Mix together before work, come home to a great smelling house and dinner ready to enjoy.
1 tsp each of cumin, paprika, chili powder, black pepper
1/2 tsp salt
1 1/2 pounds pork tenderloin
1 medium red onion, diced
1-2 jalapeno chile peppers, seeded and diced
1 1/2 cups tomatoes, fresh or canned
1/3 cup fresh lime juice (about 1 lime)
1 cup low-sodium chicken broth
6 whole wheat tortillas
1/4 cup cilantro, for garnish
6 Tbsp fat free plain yogurt, for garnish
1. In a small bowl, combine the spices and salt. Rub mixture over the entire tenderloin. Place onion and peppers in a large slow cooker.
2. Lay tenderloin over the onion bed and cover with tomatoes. Drizzle lime juice over meat and add broth.
3. Cover and cook on low for 6-8 hours. When pork is fork-tender, turn off the heat and shred. Mix with vegetables. Serve with tortillas and top with cilantro and yogurt.
