Rabbit Enchiladas with Tomatillo Sauce

Susie Jimenez is a special guest on The Sporting Chef show and she created this unique enchilada with an amazing tomatillo sauce. One note, Susie always recommends heating up your corn tortillas first before assembling. If you don’t, the corn tortillas will crack and not roll nicely. I always listen to Susie, so should you.
