Default Tomatillo salsa (salsa verde)

Super easy and good too.

1 3/4--2 cups tomatillos that are husked
1 large or two small hot peppers (vary according to taste)
1 clove garlic
1/4 t salt
5 sprigs (1/2 t dried) cilantro

Husk and wash tomatillos. Measure 1 3/4--2 cups and put in a saucepan with a lid. Add water to pan to cover tomatillos. Cover and bring to a good boil, then remove from heat and let stand 5 minutes. Drain.
Peel garlic and slice into slices. Put in blender jar. Add the peppers, seeded if you like, chopped into pieces. Add the drained tomatillos and blend until smooth. Add cilantro process just a second longer to stir the cilantro in. Refrigerate overnight to blend flavors. Add salt just before serving. Makes 2 cups.

Double recipe and make "green enchilada casserole"

2x recipe above (4c)
cooked chicken breast (I like to cook about 3-4 in the crockpot and use for this recipe)
1 large onion. minced
2-3 cups shredded cheddar, mozzarella, or other cheese that melts good
tortillas, about 10-12 of them. Corn are best but flour is ok too.

put about 1/2 cup of salsa verde in the 9x13 baking dish. Spread to cover bottom of dish. Add a layer of tortillas, torn to fit.
Take the chicken, shred it with two forks and add enough salsa verde to moisten the meat well. Add 1 large chopped mild onion, minced fine. And about a cup of shredded cheddar or mexican blend cheese. Layer 1/2 of this mixture on top of the tortillas. Top with another layer of tortillas torn to fit, then another chicken layer, then another tortilla layer.
Pour all the remaining sauce on top, top this with cheese and bake at 375 for about 30-40 minutes until cooked through and lightly browned all over.
Let sit and rest about 10 minutes so you don't kill yourself eating it. Serves 6.

Sounds wonderful! BTW I made the pork loin wrapped in a banana leaf (saba) served with corn tortillas and it was so good. Everyone loved it. This one sounds like a winner too. I'll grow some tomatillos next year and won't have to buy the canned green enchalada sauce.
