chipotle crusted pork tenderloin

serves 4-6

1 teaspoon onion powder
1 teaspoon garlic powder
2 tablespoons chipotle chile powder
(I used 1 tablespoon good ole' grocery store chili powder to rave reviews)
1 1/2 teaspoons kosher salt
3 tablespoons brown sugar
2 (3/4 pound) pork tenderloins

Pre-heat oven to 375 degrees
In a small bowl combine the onion powder, garlic powder, chipotle chile powder, salt, and brown sugar. Place tenderloin on a foil lined baking sheet and sprinkle spice mixture over the pork. Rub it in with your hands covering all the pork.
Allow to sit for 10 minutes maximum OR place in fridge if you wish to leave it longer.
Place pork in oven and bake for 20-30 minutes or till it reaches an internal temp of 155 degrees.Loosely cover with foil and allow to rest several minutes before slicing.
