The store should have tomatillos in the can, if not fresh. Is the
"sinister" pepper a very dark green (looks like a pointed bell pepper)with
shiny skin? If so, that's most likely a Passilla pepper. These are
slightly hot with an intense, smokey pepper flavor. They are used for
chili relleno and help make a great verde sauce. Go for it!

If using flour tortillas, heat up in sauce to make the tortilla pliable...
If using corn tortillas, dip in hot frying oil for a second or two to make
pliable. Enchiladas are a labor of love, don't skimp on the love!
