    Really easy and really delicious! Great week-night meal. If you think it is too spicy, you could probably cut the salsa with some plain diced tomatoes. As others suggested, I also cut the pork into bite-size pieces.

    Yummmm! Would have been 5 stars, but it is just sooo easy. Will def be a weeknight staple for us. Used mild fresh salsa (my boys won't eat anything spicier), and left avocado separate, with a douse of lemon juice. Served on jasmine rice. Delicious! Great when you are sick of the standard grilled tenderloin.

    Loved this recipe! It came together super quick and tasted very fresh. I added some ground coriander to the salsa and sprinkled with fresh cilantro. Served with microwavable steam fresh brown rice and steam fresh peas for a 15-minute start to finish meal. Will definitely add to our week-night rotation.

    This is a great and super easy recipe that you can whip together quickly, as you may already have all of the ingredients in your kitchen. I added about three chopped chipotles because I like my food really spicy, and used jarred salsa since I didn't like my grocery store's fresh salsa selection this week. I would add more avocado and some fresh cilantro, but it is perfectly tasty without either. I also served mine over jasmine rice, merely because I already had a lot on hand. In conclusion, a great recipe to add to your repetoire of quick and easy weeknight dinners.

    My husband and I liked this a lot. I didn't have fresh salsa, so used a cup of Pace's mild plus a can of diced tomatoes, drained. We had just had rice the night before, so I substituted Israeli couscous. I cut the pork into smaller pieces cause I like bite-size. It came together very quickly and was delicious.

    Don't know why I don't think of using fresh salsa like this more often..what an easy sauce and so many ways to change up this recipe! I used chk breasts instead of pork; drained the salsa, but ended up putting the liquid back in; added 2 chopped jalepenos, and served as tacos w/avacado and sour cream. Very good!

    A few suggestions for this recipe. I used Jack's fresh salsa in it, which was great. The pork chunks were to large and kind of tough. Next time I will cut pork in very small pieces or possibly stew it and shred and then add it to mixture. I happened to have some leftover black beans and corn so I through them in, which was a nice addition. I served with flour tortillas and some ate separately and some made taco's out of it. It was good either way.

    Just ok for me. But it may not be the recipe's fault, it could have been that the fresh salsa I got from my grocery store was a bit under-flavored. The tomatoes did look a bit pale. I could also have used more liquid and flavor on the actual pork. Also, I thought the portion size was a bit on the small side.

    This is a great recipe with excellent potential. Because it is a Tex-Mex recipe, I rubbed the tenderloin with 1 Tbsp. chili powder and 1 tsp. ground cumin before browning the meat. This coupled with the fresh salsa really gave it an authentic taste. Served over brown rice with limes and sour lean and fresh avocado, which really finishes it off beautifully.

    Great tasting, easy recipe. I added some fire roasted corn and a little cilantro. I diced the avocado quite small and sprinkled it over the dish and also put some sour cream in a small kitchen baggie and "piped" it over the dish in thin lines. It looked as good as it tasted! Will be making again many times.
