    Sharlene~W's Note:

    This is in my family's "Top 10" list. Quick and easy and very good. I found it in the food column of my local paper (San Jose Mercury News) several years ago. Addendum: I couldn't find tomatillos in the grocery store when I wanted to make this recently. I substituted an equivalent sized bottle of "Salsa Verde" and got nearly the same results. Just look for one that the primary ingredient is tomatillos.

      Easy to fix -- all you need is a good can opener! The lime, tomatillos and cilantro give this chili its delicious, zippy taste and fabulous aroma. Be sure to have lots of cheese, red onion, extra lime wedges, sour cream, jalapenos, etc. for your diners to put on top. Yummy!

      I was going to post an almost identical recipe. I skip the salt and sometimes top mine with reduced-fat sharp cheddar cheese. This also freezes well- defrost in fridge overnight and reheat over medium-low heat. Very tasty!
