DIRECTIONS


Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Line a baking sheet with foil.

Peel husks off tomatillos and cut tomatillos in half. Lay cut-side down on baking sheet.

Lay jalapenos, bell peppers and poblanos cut-side down on same baking sheet. Add garlic cloves.

Drizzle with 1 tablespoon olive oil and sprinkle with salt.

Roast in oven for about 20 minutes, until tomatillo and pepper skins blister. Remove from oven and let cool.

Into a blender, place tomatillos (skins included), roasted garlic, jalapeno, green bell pepper, poblano and cilantro. Pulse until finely chopped and mixed.

In a large stock pot over medium heat, add 1 tablespoon olive oil and onion. Sauté for about 5 minutes, until onion is tender.

Add chicken, tomatillo and pepper mixture, cannellini beans, cumin, oregano, coriander, the ½ teaspoon salt and chicken stock. Add a pinch of ground cloves and black pepper.

Simmer for 20 to 30 minutes.

Top with fresh avocado, cabbage, additional cilantro and lime wedges.
