  1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees F (230 degrees C).
  2. Whisk chili powder, black pepper, ground cumin, and salt together in a small bowl. Rub spice mixture onto all sides of pork tenderloin. Place tenderloin in a shallow roasting pan.
  3. Roast tenderloin in the preheated oven until no longer pink in the center, about 30 minutes. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read 150 degrees F (65 degrees C).
  4. Stir pepper jelly and balsamic vinegar together in a saucepan over low heat until jelly is completely melted, 1 to 2 minutes. Brush pepper jelly mixture over pork tenderloin and continue to bake tenderloin until jelly coating is hot, about 5 minutes more. Let pork rest for 5 minutes before slicing.

I used this recipe without modification on two pork tenderloins and it was way too spicy. I would cut the spice rub recipe in half next time.

I used all the spices listed but used mango pepper jelly instead and it was awesome! My husband and I loved it.

Very flavorful, tender, cooked them by the recipe. Next time I may try changing something but don't really see a reason to. Everyone enjoyed them.
