      This recipe was easy and tasty, I substituted vegetable broth for the chicken broth. I wasn't sure about the size of the can of chiles, so I used 2 smaller 8 oz cans. I think my sauce could also have used more tomatillos. I used this as a sauce for fish enchiladas with Cotija cheese and it came out nicely!

      *Yummers*! This was so easy and tasted delish with chicken enchiladas. I added 2 Tbls of minced garlic in lieu of the almonds and made the rest of the recipe to the "T". This has great flavor with the fresh cilantro and onion. Was just enough for 2 9x13 casserole sized pans for my chicken enchiladas. Thanks for sharing such an easy and tasty dish!
