Based on a Martha Stewart recipe. I substitute yogurt for the buttermilk originally called for. Garnish with diced avocado.

This was amazing! I followed the recipe as is, but used 99% fat free chicken broth, a jalapeno instead of a poblano (that's what I had on hand) and greek yogurt. We'd had tomatillas in food before, but never anything we'd made, and this was a wonderful recipe to start with. It was easy to make (basically just alot of chopping and stirring) and well worth the effort. We will definitely be making this again, and I can't wait to have the leftovers for dinner this week! Thanks so much for sharing. Btw, with my changes I calculated the value of the recipe to be 2 WW points/serving.
