Have you ever tasted really good
Colorado Green Chili made with tomatillos?
  

(Also known as the Mexican husk tomato) This is it. The tomatillos make the green chili. In our home, the way we do it makes the green chili, then we make bean and cheese burritos. Cover each burrito with the green chili, add lettuce, tomato, sour cream, and onions. It's simply amazing and will make your taste buds sing. 

We know some like it hot, add Siracha Sauce, or Red Pepper flakes to taste.  This recipe is great for OAMC because you can make it in advance (don't add corn starch until you are ready to reheat) make your burritos in advance and freeze, and you have dinner on the table in about 15 min or less. Make a side of Spanish rice, and refried beans and oh my gosh~ Yep it's that good!
