      I made this today for a mexican theme dinner and it was so yummy! Really easy to make as well and looked spectacular, too. I used some red bell pepper instead of the tomatillos, which was really nice. I pureed the mixture with my hand held blender and it had a creamy yet slightly chunky consistency, which I liked a lot. I used the farmer's cheese option and it paired very well with the spicy sauce. Also used taco chips to scoop it out of the serving dish. Thanks so much for sharing this little gem of a recipe with us, ellie_! Made for Newest Zaar Tag 2009.
