“This recipe appeared in the October 2007 issue of Cooking Light. I haven't tried it yet -- but hope to real soon. (Fresh tomatillos come in papery husks, which peel off easily to reveal what looks like small green tomatoes. They have a tart lemony flavor and must be cooked before eating. A brief stewing will mellow the flavor but leave some of the characteristic tang.)”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Heat oil in large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat.
  2. Combine cornmeal and chile powder in a medium bowl. Add pork, tossing to coat.
  3. Remove pork from bowl, reserving any remaining cornmeal mixture.

  5. Stir in tomatillos, broth, chiles, and jalapeno; bring to a simmer over medium low heat.
  6. Cook 8 minutes or until tomatillos are tender. Stir in onions and remaining ingredients; simmer 1 minute.
