    This was fabulous. I roasted Hatch and Ancho chilis from the garden, instead of jalapeno I used orange Cheyenne. Smokey, and delicious. What an excellent way to use the currently overabundant tomatillos. Thank You Peetabear!

  • thepiggs 10 years ago many bushels do you need?
    This recipe sounds good. I will have to try it on Hubby. It might be something that we like well enough to can for later.
    It would be nice to have enough recipes for canning, so I don't have guilt about those suckers going to waste.
