      This was the first time I made Tomatillo Sauce. It tasted a little sweet. I may add some sosur cream of plain yogurt or add some more seasoning.

      Great enchilada sauce for those who can't do chiles. I just eliminated them and it was still delicious!

      This was fantastic with some tortillas dipped in it and filled with grilled chicken, more sauce and some cheese and heated up.
