A Tex-Mex variation on this Southern-American favorite. This version uses sour tomatillos instead of green tomatoes for a tangy bite! This dish is perfect served as a breakfast side dish, with red meat, or as part of a Mexican meal.

Directions

  1. Place egg whites in a shallow bowl. In a separate shallow bowl, mix together cornmeal, herbs, salt and pepper.
  2. Heat oil in a skillet over medium heat. Dip tomatillo slices in egg whites, then dredge in cornmeal mixture turning to coat both sides.
  3. Fry tomatillo slices 2 to 3 minutes per side, or until golden brown. Be careful not to over cook; tomatillos should be tender, but not totally softened. Serve immediately.

Well, I hate being the first to review a recipe, especially when it's going to be a bad one. Sorry, but this was a complete waste of my beloved tomatillos. The seasoning in the cornmeal dominated the tom's, and clashed with them. I'm going to try again but just dredge them in flour and s&p. Thanks anyway.

I used flour, just like fried green tomatoes. They were GREAT!! I made them for our super bowel party & everyone LOVED them! They went fast!
