      Oh my! These are so delicious! I prepared about 1/2 recipe and used small tomatoes called Red Delights. I did as one reviewer stated and blotted the inside of the tomatoes with a paper towel. Instead of serving as an appetizer, I had these as a side with a pan grilled pork chop for lunch. Since is it wintertime and a snowy icy day to boot, I did not have fresh corn or tomatoes to use and they were still delish. I will definitely make these often and cannot wait till summertime to use fresh produce. The stuffing mixture was so good I could just eat it right out of the bowl :) It would also be great as a dip! Yummy! Thanks Tinkerbell!

      NEEDS TO BE COOKED! I really liked the *idea* of stuffed-tomatillos, but eating them raw/cold just didn't sound good... My version: I added 2 chopped fresh jalapenos and bacon-bits (best if REAL bacon) to the filling, and baked at 375 for 20 mins, just until tomatillos were cooked. Allow to cool at room-temp for another 20mins ... EXCELLENT! Best to use smaller tomatillos.. large ones are very juicy and soft you will need to eat with a fork.

      5 stars and more for ease of preparation, cost effective beautiful appetizer and one that tastes heavenly as my DH told me as he scarfed down his 2nd one! The only hint I'd give is to blot with a towel the inside of the tomato to help with the juices... I used Campenelle tomatoes which were a perfect 2 bite size for these treats. Made for your Summer Spectacular Secret Ingredient Win June 2009 in the Cooking Tag Games forum! :)
