Chicken Tomatillo Tacos... Bobby Flay.

I love the Food Network. I especially love when it is on at the gym and I am mapping out how long I should run so I can go home and make whatever I just watched.... Paula Dean- 7miles, Rachel Ray- 6 miles, Giada- 5 miles, Bobby Flay- 4 miles... Well, this recipe is a 3 mile run kind of meal. It is nutritious and delicious, full of protein and vegetables and you can make it in a SNAP! I first had it when my B.I.L. made it for us during one of our weekly Biggest Loser Tuesday night get togethers. He is an amazing cook. Check out his blog HERE. Since then I have made this for about everyone I know. Last night over a rousing game of Hand and Foot, Peter, Katie, Sten and I enjoyed this warm meal on a blistery Chicago evening.
Here are some pictures and the recipe:

These are Tomatillos. I found them at Harvest Time, but most grocery stores carry them as well. They look like green tomatoes, but they are not. As an easy alternative to blackening them on the grill- I broiled them for about 12 mins. Then I threw the tomatillos, the blackened Serrano pepper, cilantro, garlic, cilantro, some red onion into my mixer and puree-d until blended. It truly did look like this:

Yum. This mixture is so tasty

These look a little fancier than mine, I also used flour tortillas instead of corn... YUM
