Tomatillo Chicken Chili and a Scorpion
Last week, when we went to Lattin Farms, I bought some of those beautiful tomatillos in the pictures. I knew right away what I wanted to do with them. Make CHILI!
Tomatillos are easy to deal with … you just peel, rinse and then boil them for a little bit to cook. After they are sufficiently mushy, blend them up and you have a sauce! I decided to get all creative and add some garlic as well as a jalapeno pepper to the mix.
Then, I put some leftover chicken (from that baked chicken the other day), a couple of cans of white beans and a little bit of chicken broth in my cute little orange crock pot with my tomatillo sauce. This hot mess simmered up with a little bit of chili pepper flakes and cumin for a couple of hours into a very nice chili.
To finish, we add grated cheese, a dab of sour cream and some fresh salsa to the top. OH, and don’t forget some tortilla chips to scoop it all up. What a yummy lunch!
What about the scorpion? Ya. This was gross. We found TWO different scorpions in the basement yesterday while I was doing laundry. My husband has big feet–good for squishing scorpions. YUCK!
