6  Medium tomatillos, husks removed and rinsed
1 1/2  Pounds skinless, boneless chicken breast halves
1  32 ounce box chicken broth

2  Stalks celery, chopped
1  4 ounce can diced green chiles
2  Tbsp. snipped fresh cilantro
1  Fresh jalapeno pepper, seeded and minced*
1  Tbsp. ground cumin
1  Tbsp. lime juice
2  tsp. chili powder
2  Cloves garlic, minced
1  tsp. salt
1  tsp. ground black pepper

Dairy sour cream, chopped green onion, chopped red sweet pepper, sliced jalapeno peppers, snipped fresh cilantro, and/or tortilla chips (optional)

Chop three tomatillos. Place remaining tomatillos in blender. Cover; blend until smooth. In a 3-1/2- or 4-quart slow cooker combine pureed and chopped tomatillos, chicken, broth, sweet pepper, onion, celery, chiles, cilantro, jalapeno, cumin, lime juice, chili powder, garlic, and 1 tsp. each salt and pepper.

About Delicious Goodies

Love life, the outdoors, photography, reading, cooking, baking, spending time with family. Just a girl next door in what I call paradise - Southern California. By no means a professional cook, I do enjoy cooking, trying new recipes and sharing with others. I hope you enjoy what you find here! I have one Vegan in the family, so we are always making two meals, rather fun, and it allows us to try new ideas. When I was in Middle School I use to help my Grandmother make cookie canisters - every year at Christmas we would make an assortment of cookies, breads, candy and put them in a wrapped canister and give them as gifts. I still enjoy this idea, although haven't done it that much - at least not an assortment of goodies. I think this year will be the year I go back to that idea and see how everyone likes it. Have a wonderful week, and spread kindness everywhere you go!
