3 small radish leaves
1/4 onion
1/2 cup chicken stock
2 tbsp. oil
1 tsp. salt

Toast the pumpkin seeds in a skillet until they begin to pop, being careful that they do not burn. Transfer them to a blender and grind to obtain a smooth paste. Set aside.

Bring a large saucepan of water to a boil, add the peppers and cook for 5 minutes. Add the tomatillos and cook for 3 minutes. Drain and set aside.

In a blender, puree the tomatillos, peppers, lettuce, radish leaves and onion with the chicken stock. Set aside.

Heat the oil in a large casserole or skillet. Add the pumpkin seed paste and sauté for 3 minutes, stirring constantly. Add the pureed tomatillos and boil for 2 minutes. Add the salt, lower the heat and cook, stirring constantly, for 7 minutes. Correct the seasoning.
