½ tsp. ground cumin
¼ tsp. chili powder
¼ tsp. cayenne pepper
2 tsp. salt
2 tsp. pepper
2 sweet potatoes
½ cup heavy cream
1 tsp. butter
¼ cup brown sugar
2 tsp. cinnamon
1 tsp. ginger
Maple syrup as needed
1 box cornbread mix
1 cup all-purpose flour

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

Butterfly pork loin and pound each piece into a rectangular shape. Set in fridge.

Dice sweet potatoes and boil until tender.

Combine cornbread mix, milk and 1 egg, bake in oven for 15 minutes or until golden brown.

Steam carrots.

When cornbread is finished, break into crumbs and stir in chicken stock, 1 tsp. salt, 1 tsp. pepper, garlic, carrots, celery, cheese and half of Tropical Food’s Mexicali Fire®.

While stuffing is baking, mash sweet potatoes. Add butter and stir in cream, brown sugar, cinnamon, and ginger.

Take out pork loin and season with 1 tsp. salt, 1 tsp. pepper, chili powder, cumin, and cayenne.

Place spoonful of stuffing mixture in middle of pork loins and roll tightly like a burrito. Wrap tightly in plastic wrap and place in freezer for 10 minutes.

Take out pork loins and dip in flour, egg wash and roll into remaining Mexicali Fire®.

Roast pork rolls for 20-30 minutes, or until internal temperature is at 165 degrees.

Allow meat to rest for ten minutes before cutting.

Drizzle meat with maple syrup as desired and plate on top of sweet potatoes
