Cherry Chipotle Grilled Pork Tenderloin

Grilling Pork Tenderloin is easier than you think, and when you add in a wonderful Cherry Chipotle marinade  and sauce. you'll find yourself fighting over the last piece!

This post is sponsored in conjunction with #BBQWeek. I received product samples from sponsors to use in creating #BBQWeek recipes. However, all opinions are mine alone.



Grilled pork tenderloin


If you have never tried grilling a pork tenderloin, you must try! It grills up pretty quick since it's a smaller, boneless cut of meat. I'll teach you my trick though, for keeping it moist, as pork can dry out quickly especially on the grill.

The secret to today's Cherry Chipotle Marinade starts with Not Ketchup's Cherry Chipotle Sauce. Not Ketchup has a wonderful line of sauces that have no added sugar, corn syrup or artifial sweeteners! I kid you not! they have a wide range of grilling and dipping sauces that will tantilize your taste buds!
I love that I can just order them on Amazon! My husband is diabetic, so finding sauces that won't send his blood sugar levels sky rocketing is impossible.. till now! I love that I can trust the ingredients in them, and the flavors are just amazing!

This Cherry Chipotle sauce is not too hot! I can barely handle mild heat.. I am such a wimp, and I love this sauce! It is very kid friendly, so don't let the name scare you off! This sauce is a wonderful blend of flavors that goes great with pork, salmon chicken. 

I love to make a marinade for it, with the sauce, and then use the sauce to dab on just at the end of grilling as well for serving. I use a gas grill, but you can use charcoal as well.

Blackened Chicken Salad


This salad will have you craving it all summer long! It's simply divine, and you just have to make the Lemon Pepper Yogurt dressing to drizzle on top! Oh Mylanta! It just puts the salad over the top , and no other dressing would really do!  Plus you can pronounce all the ingredients, and it take just a second or two to whip together!
Blackened Chicken, Asparagus, & Avocado Salad w/ Lemon Pepper Yogurt Dressing.

This recipe came from my daughter in law. She said it originally called for Shrimp, but she changed it to chicken to suit her young children and budget. Since I don't care for seafood, that worked just fine for me too! I will tell you, my husband only stopped eating it long enough to say how much he loved it... several times, and to make  "Mmmm" sounds along the way!  Seriously! It's that good!
Blackened Chicken, Asparagus, & Avocado Salad w/ Lemon Pepper Yogurt Dressing.

With great Sponsors like Michigan Asparagus  and Adams Spices and Extracts my recipe was for sure to turn out fantastic! The asparagus was fresh from the farm picked! It was young, tender, and crisp! t  he spices were flavorful with unique blends that taste like they discovered your own secret spice rubs and mix recipes! I used the Burgers & Fries blend of spices, a great all purpose blend that you will love using on many dishes!

    Monthly Meal Planner May 18


    May's Monthly Meal Planner is full of wonderful meals that help you fill this celebration filled month with wonderful foods,  from Cinco de Mayo celebrations, to Mothers' Day. 



    May is a busy month, and with it we need meals that will help us celebrate as well as just help us feed our family while we are "on the go". So I picked a crock pot meal that you can start in the morning and have it ready to feed your family at night, to a quick but filling Salad, are just a few of the great ideas in this months Meal Planner.

    This month is a HUGE month at my house! 2 of my married children are packing up both  their homes together into 1 moving truck and moving across country back "home" to Virginia!. I am so excited! My grandchildren will be within better "spoiling' distance!  My daughter and husband will be moving in with us for a few months so we are making room for the newlyweds!  My son and his family are moving about 2 hours away, but still close enough to be within "hugging" distance. (They've ALL been 2000 miles away. so I am very excited!). I will be needing to brush off my Feed a crowd recipes for sure! These enchiladas and Spanish rice dishes this month are a great one to start with!

    Now if I could just get the youngest to finish school, find his special someone, and manage to move here too.. 
      

    Let's get planning and cooking!

    Chicken Enchiladas to Feed a Crowd  are perfect for your Cinco de Mayo celebration. 3  Whether it's just for your family or your taking it to a larger potluck meal at work, or other celebration. These freeze well, so make ahead  or divide the dish into smaller portions for several smaller meals.

    enchiladas


    Cheesy Spanish Rice not only feeds a crowd, it is too die for! It's not your average spanish rice at all! It's got 3 kinds of cheese, including queso fresco, creamy sour cream, green chiles, and more! Your guests will be begging for the recipe!

    Spanish Rice



    Lemon Pepper Pasta is a special dish perfect for Mothers Day or to take to a brunch. 
    Versatile with the vegetables, broccoli or asparagus is a perfect choice also. Rich with real butter, cream, and garlic, along with amazing seasonings, your family will feel your love when you serve this up. 

    Lemon Pepper Pasta


    Busy days and nights deserve a meal that you can just serve up and have your family happy to eat.
    This meal starts with frozen ravioli, so you can get your meal started quick in the morning and have dinner ready in the p.m.!

    crock pot lasagna



    Spring means Salad Season! Well I eat this Cobb Salad year round really. It's a filling full meal all by itself. I make it for our whole entire family. With Chicken, bacon, eggs, cheese, tomatoes, along with crisp fresh salad greens,  we dive right in and have some cheesy bread on the side.
    Sometimes I use rotisserie chicken, or I 'll grill some extra chicken breasts, I even use crispy chicken tenders baked up too in the salad, what ever I've got on hand at the time.

    Cobb Salad



    Can't get through May without a Honey Bun Cake! If you aren't familiar, you really need to make this cake! It tastes like a honey bun, with swirls of cinnamon & brown sugar through out the cake and topped with a wonderful glaze. It's very addicting. It looks innocent, but it is not. It just keeps you coming back nibbling and nibbling for more!
