So, you think chipotle is some exotic new pepper you never heard of? Well, it's not. It is simply jalapeno peppers that have been dried and smoked.
And, if tomatillos are new to you...they are a tomato-like fruit popular in Mexican cuisine. If you have had salsa at a Mexican restaurant, you've probably eaten Tomatillos since they are a major ingredient in most Mexican salsa.
Like tomatoes, scientifically, they are a fruit...not a vegetable. They are generally available in most major markets year round. The tomatillo is green in color and grows with a paper-like husk that resembles little lanterns on the plant. The flavor is unique with a slightly sweet tang. Try it, we think you will like it.
Note: The chipotle chilies in adobe sauce listed in the recipe is available in the "ethnic food" section of most major markets.
