"I used to love Taco Bell's Burrito Supremes, until they stopped allowing you to order them with green sauce instead of red. And then they stopped making green sauce at all. This recipe is out of nostalgic wishfulness."

Remove the husks from the tomatillos, wash and cut in half. Stem and halve the jalapeño peppers. remove the seeds.
