This delicious tomatillo-based Mexican sauce can accompany beef, pork or chicken, though it is traditionally served with pork. If you cannot find tomatillos, or green husk tomatoes, simply use organic fresh tomatoes. Adjust the spices to your liking. Serve over rice for a festive Mexican meal!
Superb. This went really well with the Mexican Rice which I found here: http://allrecipes.co.uk/recipe/708/mexican-rice.aspx Lots of lovely flavours in your mouth all at once! - 06 Dec 2010
I have been using a recipe almost identical to this one for 25 years ! I put a pork roast into my crock pot and add the sauce( without cooking first) and cook on low until the roast is tender but not falling apart. Add some cilantro-cook 15 min. more. Serve as a burrito filling, etc. Also excellent with scrambled eggs! I use fewer chilis, but I'm a wimp! First class recipe. - 27 Aug 2004 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
My family absolutely loved this, I wouldn't change a thing. I used canned tomatillos and tomatoes as that's what I had on hand. The sauce is very versatile and it would be a great topping for smothered burritos. 4/25/06- I had to edit the review to add that I made the sauce and poured over boneless pork chops in a slow cooker for 8 hours on low, then shredded the meat and served as tacos...AWESOME! Family loves the recipe both ways. - 27 Jul 2003 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
