*Tip:

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

Easy peasy! Quite tasty~ I went over board with sauce , it asked for 2x11oz & I poured all 2x14oz of tomatillos, making it a little runny. However, we enjoyed. It¿s a do over. :)
