      Nice combination of comfort-food textures and bright, spicy flavors. I was picturing a green broth, but the tomatillos yellowed when cooked, and with the chipotles added, it was orange - a bowlful of warm colors, garnished with green. I had thought I might add extra chiles for more heat, but I'm glad I didn't - it was quite spicy. If you don't like much spice you might want to use only one chipotle. Serve with good bread.
