Traditional Mexican food.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Fry chicken in animal fat, until lightly browned.
  2. In a food processor blend cloves, peppers, pepper and tomatillos. Add mix to fried chicken and add 2 cups of water. Cook for 40 minutes.
  3. Just before serving add the epazote, parsley and hierba santa, which have been previously blended in a food processor with a little water, so they stay bright green.
  4. Cook for 5 minutes more and remove from heat. The sauce should not be thick.
  5. Serve with white rice on the side.

I have so yearned for this! I often ate it with pork but the recipe is the same. Now as I return to Mexico to spend the rest of my years I clutch this recipe, smile, and bless you! T.J.
