Kraft Kitchen Tips!
Also known as Mexican husk tomatoes, tomatillos have a firm green flesh that resembles that of red tomatoes. Often they are sold with the husks still attached. Remove and discard the husks, then wash the tomatillos well before cooking. Look for them in the refrigerated produce section of your supermarket, or at your favourite Latin grocery store.
