    pork tenderloin, (see Kitchen Tip), trimmed of fat


Directions
1.
Preheat grill to high or heat a large indoor grill pan over high heat. Lightly brush peppers and onion with oil and grill (after the pork is done) until lightly browned and soft, turning once, 3 to 7 minutes. (If grilling on an indoor grill pan, you may need to grill the vegetables in two batches.) Let cool on a cutting board.
2.
Chop the onion; toss the vegetables with the pork in a large bowl. Serve the pork and vegetable filling with sour cream, salsa and tortillas for making fajitas.
Tip:

1.
Tip: To warm tortillas: Wrap in foil; bake at 300 degrees F until steaming, about 5 minutes. Or wrap in barely damp paper towels and microwave on High for 30 to 45 seconds.
Chipotle-Marinated Pork Tenderloin
1.
Combine chipotle and sauce, garlic, orange juice, lime juice, vinegar, oregano, cumin, salt and pepper in a blender or mini food processor; blend or process until the chipotle is chopped and the mixture is relatively smooth. Pour into a sealable plastic bag, add pork and seal, squeezing out any excess air from the bag. Turn to coat with the marinade. Refrigerate at least 1 hour and up to 8 hours.
2.
Preheat grill to high or heat a large indoor grill pan over high heat. Remove the pork from the marinade (discard marinade). Grill the pork, turning occasionally, until an instant-read thermometer inserted diagonally into the center of the meat registers 145 degrees F, 12 to 15 minutes. Transfer the pork to a cutting board and let rest for 5 minutes before slicing.
