      The name got my attention, flavors we love!! Didn't use the anaheim chiles, but added mushrooms and red & green pepper pieces to our skewers. Served over rice with a fresh storebought salsa and guacamole--delicious! Thanks for a good recipe!

      I found this recipe when looking for ways to cook skirt steak which I got on sale -- delicious! Next time I will put mushrooms on the skewers instead of the tomatillios though (just a personal preference). Thanks for sharing!
