How to make it
- Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
- In a baking dish, place tomatillos, onion, garlic and jalapenos. Drizzle and coat with olive oil. Roast for 30 minutes until tomatillos are very soft and everything has golden brown patches.
- Transfer the roasted vegetables and any juices on the bottom of the tray to a food processor (carefully).
- Add the cumin, salt and cilantro and lime juice and pulse mixture until well chopped but still not pureed (won’t take long).
- Meanwhile heat olive oil in a large pot over medium heat.
- Add the onion and cook until soft and caramelized - this should take 5 to 7 minutes.
- Add the garlic and cumin then cook for a further minute. (Do not burn the garlic)
- Sprinkle on the flour and stir to ensure the flour doesn't burn. Cook for a minute
- Gradually add the chicken stock to make a thin veloute.
- Continue stirring over medium heat until the liquid bubbles and thickens a bit
- Add the roasted tomatillo chile salsa (reserve about a cup for topping)
- Add the beans
- Fold in the shredded chicken meat
- Season, to taste, with salt and pepper
- Spoon into bowl and sprinkle with cheese. Place a dollop of sour cream in the center and top with a spoonful of the reserved Tomatillo Chili Salsa.
