“I love to cook with tomatillos! They have a unique sharp citrus flavor similiar to a lime. I can tame it down with sugar or heighten the flavor with lime zest. This recipe is low cost and can feed many. I love it with bow tie pasta. All the minced pieces in the sauce stick to the bow ties. I had to feed 8 on a moments notice and I grabbed these worked! Serve with fruit. This could easily be adapted for vegetarian meal without the chicken. If you half the recipe cut the onions,tomatillo and chicken in half, nothing else. Leave the liquid and spices as is.”
