This rotisserie pork loin recipe has a great southwestern kick. Slice and serve with your favorite grilled vegetables or add to tacos, stews, soups, and salads.


  • 2 whole pork tenderloins, about 1 1/2 pounds (700 g)
  • 2 garlic cloves, crushed
  • 1 tablespoon (15 mL) vegetable oil
  • 5 teaspoons (25 mL) chili powder
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons (7.5 mL) ground cumin

Steps to Make It
