purlewe: (cooking)
[personal profile] purlewe
2 onions
1 head of garlic
shredded chicken (I had a leftover whole chicken I cooked.. but I would say about 2-3 cups shredded)
1 bunch of cilantro
2/3 cup pepitos (pumpkin seeds) toasted
1 large can white beans (canellini beans, we use a 1lb 13 oz can)
8 cups tomatillos (I used 10 cups, I think that was too many)
8 roma tomatoes
chili powder (to your taste)
1 tsp mexican oregano
1 tsp espozote
salt, sugar, and pepper to taste

This was a very odd tasting chili b'c it was sour. I think it would be better on a hot day b'c it doesn't TASTE hot. I sauteed the onions and garlic, tossed in the chicken and tomatillos and tomatoes, chopped the cilantro and tossed that in. I toasted the pepitos and added the beans. I then added spices to my taste and included sugar (which I never use in cooking savory foods.. but this was way more sour than I expected.. so ymmv) It was good with sour cream on top and a dash of cheese. It would be even better with mexican chihuahua cheese. (which I forgot to go buy.)

Basically I took a chicken verde recipe I had and chili-fied it. It wasn't bad, but it wasn't Sue's favorite. I need to figure out what to do with the leftovers. cos I know she won't eat it.
