Tex-Mex Pork

Tex-Mex Pork

Fresh salsa simmers to create a surprisingly complex and zesty sauce in this quick entrée.

Yield: 4 servings (serving size: 3/4 cup pork mixture, 1/2 cup rice, 1 tablespoon sour cream, and 3 tablespoons avocado)


  • 1 pound pork tenderloin, trimmed and cut into 3/4-inch cubes
  • 3/4 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 3/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 1/2 cups refrigerated fresh salsa
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 2 cups hot cooked long-grain rice
  • 1/4 cup light sour cream
  • 3/4 cup cubed avocado


Heat a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Coat pan with cooking spray. Add pork to pan; sprinkle with 3/4 teaspoon kosher salt and 3/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper. Sauté for 8 minutes or until lightly browned. Add salsa and 1/4 cup water to pan; bring to a boil, reduce heat, and simmer 5 minutes or until slightly thickened. Serve pork mixture over rice; top with sour cream and avocado.

**This recipe was AMAZING for only using 4 ingredients! (I didn't have sour cream.) Make sure you use fresh salsa; it will be worth it!
