This meal is fantastic!!! It’s extremely savory, tangy and spicy. This dish is packed full of flavor. I had a tough time finding canned tomatilla’s so grabbed a green tomatilla chunky salsa in the taco aisle instead. I used one cup of that as a substitute. If you want your taste buds to explode, this is the dish for you. I will definitely make this meal again. Its easy, inexpensive and just fantastic. Next time, I will plan to have some tortilla chips at hand so that we can dip them in the tomatilla salsa. It leaves a lot of extra salsa. I wouldn’t keep it for too long though as it requires fresh cilantro. I give this meal a 10 out of 10.
Nick’s thoughts on the meal:
The tomatilla salsa was 50 times better than any I’ve ever had out. I usually don’t like it out, but liked this version. (Maybe its because I put a lot of love into it.) For having a whole jalapeno, it wasn’t nearly as spicy as I anticipated. Definitely a repeat meal. Another home run!
What’s for dinner tonight? Chicken Breasts with Tomatilla Salsa. I can’t wait! I am in love with the tomatilla sauce at On the Border and now I have a recipe for something similar. Here’s the link to what I’m cooking tonight. Make sure you check back to see how it turned out.
