Easter Dinner: Raspberry Chipotle Pork Loin, Baked Corn, Artichoke Dip, Deviled Eggs & Asparagus

Every Easter since I moved back to Texas, I baked a ham. Mainly because my mom loved ham. This Easter I decided to break with -- and keep with tradition. The break came with the replacement of the ham with the Raspberry Chipotle Pork Loin. The keeping with tradition was the addition of my mom's recipe for Spinach Artichoke Dip and my annual Baked Corn.

So, let's start from the top. The Raspberry Chipotle Pork Loin is a super simple recipe that will impress your friends and family. I had two friends visiting from California this Easter -- one of them I went to junior high and high school with. They loved this dish!

Here's what you need: Fischer & Weiser Roasted Raspberry Chipotle Sauce. https://www.albertsons.com/shop/product-details.960152488.html

You can also find this sauce at H-E-B. Use the Adam's Sweet Pork Rub all over the Pork Loin. https://www.heb.com/product-detail/adams-reserve-sweet-pork-rib-rub/2137036

Score the pork loin and cut slits in the top and sides. Put garlic cloves, rosemary and thyme sprigs in the pork. Add salt and pepper and the sweet pork rub. Sear it on all sides in a pan with olive oil. Roast for 40 minutes at 350 degrees. Remove and baste with the Raspberry Chipotle sauce and butter for an additional 5 minutes. I added a few fresh raspberries to the sauce. That's it! Recipe below from H-E-B.

Mom's artichoke dish is a combination of spinach, artichoke hearts, mozzarella, parmesan, sour cream, mayo and cream cheese.

The asparagus was roasted in olive oil, parmesan, salt and pepper. Finally, I made simple deviled eggs with mayo, sweet relish and paprika.

The baked corn is an easy dish that's always a crowd pleaser. https://www.allrecipes.com/recipe/9069/baked-corn/

The hardest thing about this dinner was the choice of wine. I went with an off-dry red blend from Hill Country Wineworks (a local winery). I chose Finn - a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot. It went perfectly with the meal. https://www.hcwineworks.com/product/

I hope that you had a blessed holiday weekend with your family and friends. Let me know what you made for dinner.
