• 3 Tbs. olive oil

Serves:

Instructions: 

1. Sprinkle pork with Todo Adobo and 1/4 teaspoon salt. Heat 1 tablespoon oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add pork and cook, turning occasionally, until browned on all sides and instant-read thermometer inserted into center of pork registers 145°F for medium, 10 – 12 minutes. Transfer pork to cutting board; let stand 5 minutes, then thinly slice. Keep pork covered loosely with foil.

2. Meanwhile, heat remaining 2 tablespoons oil in the same skillet over medium heat. Add onions and 1/4 cup water and cook, stirring occasionally, until onions are softened, about 8 minutes. Add tomatoes, chipotle pepper, adobo sauce, and remaining 1/4 teaspoon salt. Reduce heat to medium-low. Cover and cook, stirring occasionally, until onions are very soft and golden, about 10 minutes.
Stir in the pork and cilantro; heat through.

3. To make the polenta, bring the water to a boil. Very slowly whisk in packet of polenta. Continue to whisk while simmering for 3 minutes, until very thick. Remove from heat.

4. Divide polenta among 4 plates; top each serving evenly with the pork mixture.
