      I quartered the recipe. This makes alot. It`s very close to the can green chilies. I added some fresh squeezed lime juice for a little zing and storage life. I used it in pork tortillas.

      I am from the south, and really liked the recipe. The only thing different I did was instead of water I made stock first by simmering a chicken carcass for a few hours with some celery, onion, cilantro, garlic, carrot..... I like to save veggie end pieces/ bones in the freezer, then pull them out when Im making broth. Super yummy to substitute wherever water is called for... wouldnt touch the premade broths, the stuff isn't the same... lots of yucky additives.
