The Aztec’s Knew Their Flavors

From the Amazon Basin, up through Central America, southern Mexico and eventually the Caribbean, ancient tropical rain forests have provided an exotic bounty found nowhere else on earth, including sweet potatoes, pumpkins, cashews, papaya, avocados, cocoa, coffee, vanilla, and over twenty-five species of wild chile peppers.

Dried red peppers are often used in ethnic cuisine, though for the most part, chipotle has remained unique to Mexico foods.  To this day, Mexican food is based primarily on Aztec and Mayan tradition, and it is considered second only to Chinese cuisine in terms of it’s complexity and history.  Known for intense flavor and colorful presentation, the heart and soul of Mexican cuisine remains the chile pepper. Chipotle’s are jalapenos that have been smoked and dried.

Is it really a surprise that the aromatic ingredients and flavors of the region just happen to go so well together?  Pork and coffee go together like peanut butter and jelly and a chipotle’s smokey richness always pairs with the deep chocolate flavors found in many central american coffees.  Marry these beautiful flavors to make a succulent Coffee Rubbed Roasted Pork tenderloin that is sure to make your mouth water and have you coming back for more.
