  • 2 pounds tomatillos, husked and cut in half

  • 2 bunches green onions, ends trimmed

  • 5 jalapeno peppers, halved and seeded

  • 4 cloves garlic, or more to taste

  • 2 cups chopped fresh cilantro

  • 1 cup chicken stock

  • 1 lime, juiced

  • 1 teaspoon salt, or more to taste

  • 12 corn tortillas

  • 4 cups cubed cooked chicken

  • 4 cups shredded mozzarella cheese

  • ½ cup crumbled queso fresco

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C).

  2. Combine tomatillos, green onions, jalapeno peppers, and garlic together in a baking dish.

  3. Roast vegetables in the preheated oven until softened and fragrant, about 20 minutes. Remove from oven and increase oven temperature to 450 degrees F (230 degrees C)
