20-Minute Pozole Stew


2 pork tenderloins, cut into bite-size pieces (about 2 lbs.)
1 Tbsp. Knorr® Chicken flavor Bouillon
2 Tbsp. vegetable oil, divided
1 1/2 cups Simple Sofrito*
1 Tbsp. chipotle peppers in adobo sauce

1 cup water
1 Tbsp. lime juice

Combine pork with Knorr® Chicken flavor Bouillon in large bowl; set aside.
