    Roosevelt Mommy's Note:

    I wanted to keep this recipe safe, where my three toddlers couldn't write all over it. This is extremely time consuming, but well worth all of your efforts. You can find all these ingredients at Walmart. If you have never cooked with tomatillos before try to pick ones that have the "paper wrapper" still attached. Remove this wrapper once home and throughly rinse the tomatillo. They usually are a little sticky, this is normal. Cut out the top of the tomatillo like you would a tomato. I hope you enjoy these recipes!
