      This is one of the best, most flavorful pork recipes that I have ever made. My husband still raves about how good this was.

      Excellent way to stuff a pork tenderloin. The directions were very clear and accurate. Delicious flavour - I used a serrano chile instead of Jalapeno and deglazed the pan with some reduced wine/shallot sauce and poured that on top of the tenderloin before serving.

      Amazing dish. I made it into stuffed pork chops. I cooked them on a pan for approx 15 min. I used cheddar instead of Monterey Jack. This is a keeper for sure.
