Notes

*TOMATILLO [toh-mah-TEE-yoh] - This fruit, which is also called Mexican green tomato, belongs to the same nightshade family as the tomato.

Note—this version of green chili is good in the summer and is excellent as a soup or to smother on burritos.

Note also—the ingredient amounts from the original recipe yield a large 2 gallons or 25 servings. To yield a more family cooking size 2 quarts or 6–7 servings use the recipe amounts in the parentheses.
