Fantastic! My mind is racing thinking of all the ways I want to use this delicious sauce. I always liked Taco Bell's verde sauce, but, this is even better. I bought 5 lbs. of tomatillos at the farmer's market. I think I'll make a triple batch of this sauce and try freezing it. Thanks for sharing this delicious recipe.
