      We enjoyed this dish. I reduced recipe by half and still had left overs after serving 2 adults and 2 kids, so the portions are generous. I used pork tenderloin. I did not add breadcrumbs and instead chose to let the sauce reduce by itself.

      I had to used canned peppers and ground cinnamon because that is what I had on hand. It smelled so good while simmering on the stove. It looked really good too, UNTIL I added the breadcrumbs. Everyone agreed that it looked gross BUT they ate it, and even had seconds!! I was afraid to would be too spicy for some family members, but it wasn't at all. I served this over brown rice with roasted asparagus on the side.

      This made the house smell so good while it was cooking. My family loved this. Placed in a tortilla. Made for Tastebud Tickling Travellers for ZWT4.
