things to do with tomatillos other than salsa verde

We've got tomatillos. Lots of tomatillos. Way more tomatillos than I have any earthly idea what to do with.
And we've probably got enough salsa verde to last us through the year.
Anyone have other ideas for these things? Do folks pickle these a la jalapenos or green tomatoes?
Did a recipe search for you.
How about soup or sandwiches?
Ming Tsai (TV food network) makes a soup w/them:
you can also use them in Chilli:
I make a lamb curry based on a dish I had near Monterey once. The sauce is tomatillos, onion, cumin, ginger, garlic, green chilis, turmeric, with fresh cilantro on top. Cube and brown the lamb well first, then cook like a rogan josh. Good with dry-cooked spiced potatoes.
ha ha ... send them to me! i need about 9# for the green chilequiles i am making for the SF Chowing with the Hounds picnic on Saturday.
I too had more Tomatillos than I could handle. And we didn't even plant them. They were volunteers from last year.
I made and canned 30 pints of sauce that works well for Enchiladas and Chilaquiles.
The first edition of the Marlboro Country Cookbook has an amazing Tomatillo Chili recipe in it.
