1 package (550 grams) Chicken Tortellini
1 bottle Green Mexican Sauce (Salsa Verde)
1 cup Baby tomatoes
3 tbsp sour cream
Pinch of Salt and Pepper to taste
This simple one pan recipe is made with chicken tortellini, baby tomatoes, sour cream and green verde sauce. It doesn’t get any simpler than this folks!
If you have tried Green Chili verde in Mexican cooking before and liked it. Then your sure to like this Chicken Tortellini Verde which is made in the same Tomatillo green sauce.
Your probably thinking, Italian pasta and Mexican Green Chili Verde! Could that possibly be good? Well I assure it is because it has the right balance of flavors.
And this recent recipe creations has turned out to be a favorite in our home.
Sure, you won’t typically find this offered in any mexican or italian restaurant. However I encourage you to give it a try if you are a foodie like me! It’s an excellent fusion dish and is absolutely delicious!
Now there is a process to making authentic tomatillo sauce and that starts with roasting tomatillos, along with garlic, jalapenos and onions in the oven.
However that takes a lot of time and would make this recipe not so quick. So instead we are using a pre -made green chili sauce that has all those authentic mexican ingredients in it.
So what are Tomatillos anyway? Well they are little green looking tomatoes, known as the Mexican husk tomato, but they are hard to find here in Canada.
And even so I prefer to buy it pre-made its still natural and fresh. Also don’t forget to add the sour cream as well, this really kicks up the flavor and pulls the dish together.
