P.S. T. Neill clearly rewrote this recipe to be Gringo Gourmet - you can tell by the ingredients list, more French than Mexican. 

Tomatillos are a major ingredient in salsas of various sorts. I need to check on whether tomatillo season has come and gone out here - don't remember seeing them at the Grower's Market lately.
