I can not tell you how amazing homemade Chile Verde is. So, so, so, soooooo much yummier than the jarred stuff. Roasting the tomatillos, poblano peppers and garlic brings out a flavor that just can't be put into words. Sweet, tangy, charred, slightly spicy are some that come to mind.
This dish is mouth watering, eye popping, authentic tasting goodness.
Honestly, this is pretty simple. It definitely falls into the "If I can do it, anyone can do it " category.
Do you know how easy it is to make your own corn tortillas?
I didn't until my mom made a batch in all of about 5 minutes!
I'm talking 3 ingredients people, and that's including the water!
Oh my! I will never be able to eat the thin cardboardy corn tortillas sold at the store ever again.
They totally made the dish an authentic masterpiece.
