Caribbean Peanut Crusted Pork Loin

“Serve the Vanilla Yams and Curried Mango Sauce (in this same ZWT 3 cookbook) with this! This recipe is meant for peanuts that have been infused with jalapeno or habanero chiles (Heater's brand). If you can't get them, choose super spicy peanuts, or just peanuts, and add dried chiles, ground.”
