Serve this on top of a crisp tostada or as a filling for tacos. Would make a nice appetizer served in mini taco shells.

Delicious! I used two tomatillos and six tomatoes, otherwised followed the recipe exactly. When adding the purée to the chicken mixture, only add as much as needed. This was soooo scrumptious and perfectly spiced. I highly recommend this recipe.
