I used fresh tomatillos but did not add a jalapeno as loved the taste without it. I am sure it is delicious WITH the jalapeno. I used your sauce in place of a can of green chilies, adding a 1/4 cup to the recipe I was making. Absolutely delicious! We even used the sauce as a topping with sour cream after the dish was baked. I have really just discovered tomatillos (grew some plants this summer) and can't believe what I have been missing. Love how easy your recipe is to make and will be making lots of your sauce in the future. Thank you for posting. M.Joan
