      This was excellent! I did add some seasonings (1 t. mexican oregano, 1 t. cumin, 1/2 t. epasote and 1 clove of garlic) to the sauce, and used a mix of 1 serrano, 1 habanero and 2 jalapenos as the peppers. Sauce was really fantastic and could be used on a lot of things. I plan to make a big batch and freeze it to have on hand. Thanks for a great recipe.

      Very good casserole. I used a quart of home canned tomatillos in the sauce so I did not have to cook them. The flavor was great and I will be making again to use up all those home canned tomatillos. Thank you for sharing this recipe.
