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.

Wouldn't call it pretty but it tasted great! Made as directed other than instead of green picante sauce I made Chilean Cilantro Salsa (Pebre) for dipping. I served with my own cilantro lime rice recipe on the side.

I really liked this a lot, although my husband didn't care for it. I made a half recipe and made with green rice (cilantro/jalapeno rice) and some green beans. I love fresh cilantro and this dish really makes good use of it in my opinion! Thanks for posting!

The flavor was wonderful, but I had a hard time stuffing the pork, everything kept spilling over.

This recipe is just "okay". The first glaring issue I had with it was the direction to cook the pork to a temperature of 170 degrees. Way too overdone at that temp. Tenderloin should be pulled at a temp no higher than 135 and allowed to rest to 140. A lot of fussy work for an "okay" result. Probably won't be making this again.

This was a great way to make pork tenderloin a little more interesting. I used Cilantro Pesto Cilantro Pesto that I had frozen, but still added the fresh lime juice. My pork came out a little dry, so I think I'll have to decrease the cook time a bit in the future. But overall a great meal!

Awesome! Best pork recipe I have ever tried. I used Feta cheese and pork was full of flavor, tender and moist.
