  1. I am always looking for ways to use tomatillos - I love them!

  2. Pam, me too! Have you tried growing them? They are really prolific!

  3. I'm always happy to learn about other slow cooker sites; however those sites must be submitted through the process outlined on the sites. Links left in the comments will not be published.

  4. Thanks so much for featuring this recipe from my blog. I eat the filling often without the tortillas, making this an incredibly lean main course (great for folks like me who always try to eat healthy in January).

  5. Lydia, it does sound like it would be great without the tortilla!
