This is coming from memory, but it was originally found in a cooking light cookbook. It was always a favorite when I made it. This is also a double recipe if I remember correctly.

This was very good and easy to throw together. I made my own green chili salsa Mexican Take-Out Tomatillo Salsa Mexican Take Out Tomatillo Salsa, it's better (in my opinion) than the bottled/store-bought. I also added some cumin and chopped onion, and garnished with sliced scallions and low-fat sour cream. Made for PAC Spring 2009.
