Corn and Tomatillo Soup

 
Corn and Tomatillo Soup
325

Last summer, we had some fresh tomatillo from our farmer's share, then we found this recipe and gave it a try. The flavor was so good, we followed the recipe exactly, but you don't like too spicy, you can reduce the amount of the green chilis. The result will be still outstanding! It can be served warm or chilled.
