Easy recipe, excellent flavor. I served it w/tortilla chips alongside guacamole and it held its own very well. Nice contrast. Later, it enhanced steak and even eggs at breakfast.

I used only 1 can of chipotle chiles in adobo. 6pcs of tomatillos, 3 cloves garlic. all was cooked on the pan with olive oil instead of heating up the oven.
