    I tried making half a batch, and it was a little soupy. It was still good and my husband really liked it. (I didn't tell him it was healthy.) - 11/14/11

    Yum, this was good. I added garlic and minced onions with fresh chiles, cooking them and adding to the green enchilada sauce. We also used whole wheat tortillas. This microwaved well--we were in a hurry.

    Fresh green sauce can be made from fresh tomatillos and chiles, too.
