    Delicious. Served this with Spanish rice w/black beans recipe and of course, margaritas. Would definently make again and serve to guests.

    Excellent recipe! The only suggestion I would make would be to double it since I found that there wasn't really enough to coat two 1 lb tenderloins. I also took everything from the marinade (but the tequila) and made a side dish of corn and black beans. Very tasty!

    This recipe was excellent. I can't wait to make it again. I don't usually like pork because it is so dry but this was so moist and delicious even my picky 17 month old son loved it. I served it with some cilantro rice and corn to make it festive and let it marinade overnight for less clean up the next evening. I can't wait to make this again. Yummy!

    This is a killer marinade for pork tenderloin, even though I didn't have several ingredients on hand and had to ad lib. I used a tablespoon of finely minced yellow onion instead of green, roasted ground chili instead of the jalapeno and regular chili powder, and a tad more lime juice because I didn't have any orange. Next time I hope to have all of the ingredients because I think this can only get better.

    Very flavorful, strong without being spicy hot. It was perfect as-is for my husband and I, and now I can't wait to make it for his mother, sister and whole family. Followed the previous reviewer's lead on making additional marinade for a black bean and corn side dish - thank you for that suggestion! This dish is definitely a keeper!
