I made these last night with your green chili recipe. I was planning on following recipe as is, but DH got called to work early (midnights) and was rushed to feed him. So, didn't put tortillas in oil, and forgot to put broth in with chicken! Still turned out wonderful! Easy to do and so tasty! I will be making these often, but not leaving out any steps next time!
