​Fall Cinnamon Pear Balsamic Stuffing

1 chopped large onion
1 chopped green pepper

1/4 cup chopped fresh parsley

2 Tbsp. of Chipotle Olive Oil
2 Tbsp. of Reduced Maple Red Balsamic
1-1 1/2 Cups of Maple Fall stuffing (see recipe below)
1 tsp. Roasted Garlic Sea salt & freshly ground pepper
Preheat oven to 400 degrees.  Season pork with garlic sea salt and freshly ground pepper. In a large skillets (oven proof skillet) heat chipotle olive oil on high (on the stove top) and pan sear pork about 4-5 minutes on each side.  Remove pork and let cool until it is easy to handle. Cut a pocket down the side of each tenderloin.  Divide stuffing into four equal parts. Stuff pork tenderloins and secure with toothpicks so stuffing won't fall out when turning.  Place pork back into skillet or baking dish.  Bake pork for 15 minutes, flip and drizzle with Maple balsamic and bake for another 15 minutes until cooked through (internal temp is 165 degrees).
