This chipotle-spiced main with a black bean salad on the side requires just 10 minutes of your time—and results in a satisfying meal the whole family will love. First, the pork loin gets rubbed with a mixture of chipotle chili pepper, paprika, cumin, coriander, and olive oil. Once that goes in the oven, it takes just a few minutes to mix the salad—beans, avocado, cilantro, scallions, chili pepper, lime juice, olive oil, and salt. Then, you’ve got just over an hour to sit back and relax while your kitchen is filled with the aroma of a cantina south of the border.
