I saw this recipe over the weekend on Everyday Food and just had to make it. It was easy and one of the most flavorful dishes I have ever made – really! Those little green tomatillos really pack a flavorful punch. Yum :)
Ever seen tomatillos before? They have a husk and are related to the gooseberry. I have used them before in salsa verde, but never cooked a whole dish with them. I only had 1 1/2 lbs, so I added a little water to the pan to give the chicken some extra liquid to cook in.
I only used 1 large jalapeño and it turned very mild in the dish, there was no real heat which was perfect for me.
What the heck is hominy? Well, I have *a lot* leftover so I will be finding lots of new ways of using it over the next week or so.
The finished product…and I had to wait to eat it, that’s very difficult for me!
Thank you, kids, for letting me each this amazing meal in peace ;)
