Need your tomatillo recipes!

My DH planted a tomatillo plant...and it's got TONS of upcoming fruits!
I have a basic salsa recipe, but what else can I make with them?
Roast them in the oven with onions, garlic and green chiles (any kind will work) until everything smells caramelized and wonderful. Blend until smooth with some stock and a bit of cilantro (if you like it). Add some cumin, Mexican oregano, salt, pepper to taste. Use this as a green enchilada sauce, or water it down a bit more and use it as a delicious braising liquid for some pork or chicken and serve with rice, beans and tortillas on the side. Also great as the sauce for braised ribs.
Edit: I also once had an amazing dish at a restaurant that involved a piece of tilapia in a lemony, buttery tomatillo sauce. I swore there were artichokes in it, but the waitress insisted there weren't. Nevertheless, it would be great with artichokes.
Just to get you started:
