Pork Mole

A great mole dish without the complication of a great mole dish. Simply brown the pork tenderloin in the same skillet as the tomatoes, garlic and onions. Simmer the meat in the sauce with the spicy ingredients—chili, chipotle, cinnamon, and cocoa—and your family will ask you for a Mexican themed dinner every week.
