Were there to be roasted tomatoes as well as peppers?

We are about an hour out from verde time, and I am excited. I threw in two bay leaves and a little bouquet of fresh cilantro. I was puzzled in the instructions, step two, where it refers to tomatoes that are supposed to steam with the charred peppers. What tomatoes? They aren't on the ingredients list. Initially I thought it was a type-o in the instructions and meant to call for the tomatillos; but that wouldn't make any sense when you read down through the instructions and it goes on to describe how the roughly chopped tomatillos go into a blender with chicken stock while the peppers are roasting. What the hey, I just roasted the tomatillos and blended them with the stock. Were there to be roasted tomatoes as well as peppers? Thank you!

Hopefully the recipe author will chime in and let us all know. I had a look at the recipe, and that part is confusing, isn't it? I've had chili verde that did contain roasted tomato bits, though my favorite version doesn't. Personally, I think roasting the tomatillos would add a nice touch. I never thought of doing that myself, but I might just do that next time I make mine. I bet yours will be tasty, regardless.
