Crostini are easy appetizers that can be prepared in a short period of time and topped with your favorite ingredients, whether sweet or savory. I had a few tomatillos leftover from making green enchiladas so I decided to treat my weekend guests with these little savory crostini everyone went crazy for. Since cheese and tart tomatillo pair perfectly well, the toasted bread give it that ideal crunch with a spicy kick of poblano pepper. MORE + LESS -
