Green Sauce is made from tomatillos not green chilis. I would suggesrt not using this recipe to make green sauce. Email me for the "real" green sauce recipe. - 8/1/07

So you are the only one who knows how to make green sauce? Ever think about how the recipe changes depending on where you are? There is a reason this is called "New Mexico" green sauce - because that is how we do it there, at least in the south.
