I just tried the salsa from the back of the Southwestern Seasoning Mix using a 50/50 mix of tomatoes and tomatillos. Tasty.

I think they taste similar to tomatoes, and they are not spicey.

Tomatillos are a cousin to the tomato. They are different--slightly more acidic. It's kind of like the differences between vanillas or cinnamons. Here's what Food Lover's Companion says:

This fruit, which is also called Mexican green tomato, belongs to the same nightshade family as the tomato. in fact, it resembles a small green tomato in size, shape, and appearance except fotr the fact that it has a thin parchment-like covering. . . . Although tomatillos can ripen to yellow, they are generally used while still green and quite firm. Their flavor has hints of lemon, apple, and herbs. . . . tomatillos are popular in Mexican and Southwest cooking . . . can be used raw in salads and salsas for a more acidic taste. . . . The tomatillo is also called jamberry.
