Chicken Tomatillo Tacos
1 tablespoon butter
1/2 cup finely chopped onion
1 pound fresh tomatillos, husked, quartered
1 teaspoon minced garlic
1/2 jalapeno, seeded, finely chopped
2 tablespoon chopped cilantro
1 tablespoon chopped fresh oregano
1/2 teaspoon cumin
2 chicken bouillon cubes
1-2 cups water
1-2 fresh limes
3 cups shredded cooked chicken
Salt to taste
Tortillas or taco shells
Shredded lettuce
Shredded Queso Blanco cheese (substitute Mozzarella or Monterey Jack)

Melt butter in saucepan, add chopped onion and sauté until tender. Add quartered
peeled tomatillos, garlic, chopped jalapeno, cilantro, oregano, cumin, bouillon and 1 cup
water. Bring ingredients to a boil (add additional water, as needed, to keep from
scorching and to create desired consistency), reduce heat to low and simmer until
tomatillos are soft (10-20 minutes). Using a hand blender, puree until smooth. Add the
juice of 1 lime (more or less to taste). Add salt to taste.

Add salsa to cooked shredded chicken. Serve chicken wrapped in a taco with lettuce,
tomato and cheese!
