1
32 ounce box chicken broth
1
1/2
cup chopped red onion
1

1
4 ounce can diced green chiles
2
tablespoons snipped fresh cilantro
1

1

Topper such as sour cream, chopped green onion, chopped red sweet pepper, sliced jalapeno peppers, snipped fresh cilantro, and/or tortilla chips (optional)

Directions

  1. Chop three tomatillos. Place remaining tomatillos in blender. Cover; blend until smooth. In a 3-1/2- or 4-quart slow cooker combine pureed and chopped tomatillos, chicken, broth, sweet pepper, onion, celery, chiles, cilantro, jalapeno, cumin, lime juice, chili powder, garlic, salt and black pepper.

If desired, serve topped with sour cream, additional chopped red sweet pepper or jalapeno peppers, snipped cilantro, and/or tortilla chips. Makes 4 to 6 servings.

From the Test Kitchen

*

Because hot chile peppers, such as jalapenos, contain volatile oils that can burn your skin and eyes, avoid direct contact with chiles as much as possible. When working with chile peppers, wear plastic or rubber gloves. If your bare hands do touch the chile peppers, wash your hands well with soap and water.
