“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.”

Original recipe yields 4 servings



  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.



this was not so good..I fixed them as it said and then fixed the rest like green fried tomatoes..which was so much better..use the whole egg. and cornmeal and flour mixed and season to taste cook in a little olive good..try that..



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!
