Turkey Chili Verde

Turkey Chili Verde


"Chili verde made in Mexico is made with tomatillos instead of Hatch green chiles, but it's still green, thus the name. This delicious turkey dish is flavored with the distinct tartness of fresh tomatillos and the Herdez sauce. It comes to a perfect balance with the roasted peppers. Muy Delicioso!!"
