  1. Peel crusty stuff off tomatillos.
  2. Boil tomatillos, chiles and jalapeno until the tomatillos turn a darker green.
  3. Place them in the blender with the cilantro, onion, and garlic. Blend. Add a tsp. or two of salt, to taste.
  4. Warm up the sauce in a pot.
  5. Meanwhile, make a hot oil bath to soften the corn tortillas.
  6. Dip the tortillas for less than 10 seconds and place a strip of chicken on them and roll up.

  8. If you aren't ready to serve individually, line up the enchiladas in a baking dish, pour the sauce on top and place in a warm oven.
