We call this recipe Pork Loin in Peanut Sauce—but it's so much more than that! It's a rich combo of onions, garlic, tomato sauce and ancho peppers too.

Kraft Kitchen Tips!
Serving Suggestion
Serve with hot cooked rice and steamed fresh green beans.
Substitute pasilla peppers for the ancho peppers.
How to Hydrate Dried Ancho Peppers
Place dried ancho peppers in small glass bowl. Add enough boiling water to completely cover peppers. Let stand 30 min. or until peppers are soft. (Soaking time will vary slightly depending on the size of the peppers.) Drain peppers, saving soaking water to use for cooking rice or other dishes.
