I experimented with a few of the copycat versions and the one I’m sharing today is my favorite! We love to serve this with just about anything! 

My kids like to pour a little over my Mexican Rice and I also love to make my Smothered Chicken Burritos with it. The delicious options are endless. 🙂

  1. I have to ask if a tomatillo is related in any way to peppers.
    It wouldn’t be pretty if I had one and had a reaction.

    This looks very good!
