    mary winecoff's Note:

    Most recipes are calling for green chilies....this one uses fresh tomatillos and jalapeños. This sauce is hot and goes great with enchilada, tacos or frittatas. From Fast, Fresh & Spicy Vegetarian by John Ettinger. One pound of tomatillos is around 11.

      I really enjoyed this Mexican Green Sauce. I used this recipe to replace the canned green enchilada sauce called for in Heidi in Seattle's Slow Cooker Pork Chili Verde #267387. This sauce is great with tortillas chips (salsa verde). I used canned tomatillos (I live in Western Nebraska - fresh tomatillos were not an option), a large onion, and serrano chilies instead of jalapenos as they were what I had on hand. I followed the rest of the recipe as written. Thanks for a great sauce! Made for Photo Tag.
