Pork Tenderloin with Chunky Guacamole

This is probably one of my most favorite grilled meals. Central Market has really delicious meats that are marinated and ready to throw on the grill, and I think the southwest marinated pork tenderloin is one of their best. I love that Jeff is so willing to grill as much as he is, otherwise I think I would only cook twice a week!

Grilled Pork Tenderloin with Chunky Guacamole

1 pork tenderloin
1 avocado
1 large tomato
1 small red onion
1/2 jalapeno
3 T fresh cilantro
2-3 limes, juiced
salt and pepper to taste

Place the pork tenderloin on a heated grill and cook to perfection. (sorry I don't have more to say about this, but it is not my area of expertise!)
For the guacamole, chop up the tomato and red onion into large pieces. Next, dice the jalapeno (with seeds for heat) and add to tomatoes and onion. Add cilantro, lime juice, salt and pepper. Let this sit for a few hours to let the lime juice marinate the veggies. Just before you eat, add the avocado. Serve the guacamole on top of the grilled pork. I served my pork tenderloin with sauteed spinach and pinto beans that I had left over from the night before.

Bon Appetit!
