Now this recipe has OOOmph. some members may find it a bit too spicy but for me it was a great blend of flavor & hotness. The salsa is an added bonus that I will use with other recipes (Ihave a bit leftover and may put it on my Sat. Hamburger), The touch of red bell pepper gives nice color contrast. Be sure to rinse the black beans as it says in the recipe or you may muddy the color contrast in the salsa. The salsa has a subtle almost but not quite sweet & sour taste. I BBQ'd on a gas grill and the pork medallions were perfect. Thanks SueL and good luck in the contest

This definately packs the heat! I found it to be a little too spicy, next time I'll tone it down a bit! It certainly is a unique recipe, and the pork itself came out moist and tender! The peaches in the salsa added a welcome sweet flavor. I'll definately make this again, a milder version!

Sue, what a great recipe! I found the heat to be just right for my tastes. I did add a bit of onion to the paste and ended up doing the meat in the crock pot instead of the grill. The cilantro and chilies flavored the pork so nicely! Next time I will do it on the grill with a thicker cut of chop. The peach salsa is what makes the dish! I was a bit leary of combining peaches and cilantro, but the combination is superb! Next time I will make a double batch of salsa (I was eating it alone even!) I will definately make this again! Thank you for a fantastic recipe! -CG

This was great, the two work together so well and with corn on the cob a great meal. I didn't think it was too hot was cooked though, the salsa cools it off. For the paste though, I doubled the amount of cilantro, added the juice of one lime, and about 2-3 tablespoons of white wine to thin it out a bit and to disperse the heat. The salsa can handle about a half of a red pepper too.
