"I was so excited when I found canned Tomatillos at the local supermarket.
I've missed cooking with Tomatillos and although I would have preferred fresh one's, canned would do.
This was simple to make and as indicated, I used canned tomatillos. I also used small macaroni instead of orzo as I was unable to find orzo in the market.
Cooking was quick and simple.
The flavor has that wonderful tomatillo tangy sourness. The sour cream cuts the sharpness so that it isn't overwhelming. Delicious!"

Servings  

Preparation

Lightly spray a nonstick 4-quart Dutch oven with vegetable oil and place over medium heat. Add the onion, garlic, a few teaspoons water, and cook, stirring constantly, about 5 minutes until the vegetables are tender. Add 3 cups water, tomatillos, jalapeno, and bouillon cube and bring to a boil. Reduce the heat and simmer 8 to 10 minutes. Cool slightly. Transfer the mixture to a food processor, or use an immersion, or hand, blender, and puree until smooth. Return the mixture to the Dutch oven, stir in the orzo, and heat through, but dont boil. Either stir in the sour cream in the pot or add a dollop on each serving.

The tomatillo is smaller than a tomato, covered with a tight-fitting paperlike husk, and tastes best when green. It can be found in specialty food stores, Latin American markets, and some supermarkets. Substitute green tomatoes if you cant find tomatillos. Orzo is a small rice- shaped pasta that cooks in just a few minutes. (250 cal, 1.5g fat)

This recipe is quite tasty but needs a little editing. One pound of orzo is way too much pasta for the liquid. I recommend using 1/4 lb of cooked orzo or maybe a 1/2 cup of barley. Otherwise it is a fast, easy yummy soup.
