  1. Place tomatillos, jalapenos, and garlic in a large pot. Pour in just enough water to cover the tomatillos; they will float, so press them down with your hand as you measure the water. Bring to a boil over high heat, then reduce heat to medium-low and simmer until the color of the tomatillos lightens to a yellow color, about 10 minutes. Remove from heat, and allow to cool for about 10 minutes.
  2. Strain the tomatillos, reserving the water. Place into the bowl of a blender; add the cloves, cumin, pepper, and chicken bouillon. Puree until smooth, use the reserved water as needed to adjust the consistency.

This is so easy to make. Hot and spicy! I couldn't resist and added a little onion powder to the mix in the blender. Maybe it would have been milder if I had seeded my large jalapeno first. Than...
