      This recipe sounds so interesting and tasty. Thanks for sharing it, but have a couple questions…
      Is there a flavor/texture change if using green tomatoes instead of the tomatillos? Also can canned green chiles be used instead of fresh ones?

      The flavor might be a little different but not bad, just make sure you use tart green tomatoes. Roma tomatoes work. You could also use half tomatillo and half tomato if you need to. Yes, canned chiles can be used, make sure you drain and wipe the moisture off them as you want only the peppers themselves put in. Hope this helps. Thanks; Virginia
