    Papagayita's Note:

    This is the first tomatillo recipe I've found that replicates the delicious salsa verde you get at Taco Cabana. And its pretty easy. All of the ingredients can be adjusted to taste.

      Really good salsa. Very different from the salsa I usually make. I used two big jalapenos and it turned out super hot. But the flavor was nice and fresh. Thanks for posting.

      Love it! Tomatillo sauce is one of my favorites, and this recipe is definitely closer to restaurant-quality than anything else I've tried. This is definitely going into my regular rotation.

      This is an excellent recipe. I pureed the tomatillos in the blender alone and put in the fridge to chill before adding the other ingredients, and added just a little sugar. It is great over roasted chicken, chimichangas baked with cheese, and as a dip.
