Ingredients

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.

    Made this recipe this evening and it was A-One! Excellent post. I'd never heard of a chili such as this before....only used to the regular tomato sauce based hamburger version! Who knew? This was also the first time in my life I ever cooked with a tomatillo. They are the coolest thing. Thanks so much! Great recipe!

    That looks delicious.. Would you classify that as tex mex? Its impossible to get Tex Mex food here in Italy and i miss the great restaurants in NYC. Anyway, you are a man after my own heart.. i use fresh ( non canned) ingredients only. Unless its stock or beans. Thanks.. Richard

    It is insanely delicious with a wonderful fresh taste. If you are not big into spicy, you can seed the Jalapenos before roasting, but I don't recommend it as the balance of fresh, zesty and spicy is perfect.
