Directions

  1. In a small bowl, combine paprika, oregano, onion powder, salt and black pepper. Sprinkle pork with spice mixture. Heat 1 teaspoon oil in a large nonstick skillet on medium-high, tilting skillet to coat bottom lightly and cook pork for 3 to 4 minutes per side or until slightly pink in center. Transfer pork to a serving platter; cover to keep warm.
  2. For the Vegetables: Return skillet to medium-high. Add 2 teaspoons oil and tilt skillet to coat bottom lightly. Add corn, onion, bell pepper and jalapeno. Cook for 2 to 3 minutes or until onions are translucent, stirring frequently. Add tomatoes and cook for 2 more minutes, until tomatoes are just tender. Remove from heat, sprinkle with remaining 1/4 teaspoon salt, cover and let stand for 2 minutes to allow flavors to meld. Serve vegetable mixture over top of pork.
