I tell you right now, each dish I made with the salsa verde PoPPeD with a winning combination of flavor and texture.

SALSA VERDE AUSSIE GRASSFED GROUND BEEF WONTON CRISPS
A MERRY RECIPE SALSA VERDE
12 ounces tomatillos, peeled (about 3 cups)
1 cup cilantro, stems okay
3 garlic cloves
3 green onions
1 jalapeños or 1/2 Serrano if you like it hot
1 poblano pepper, charred, scrape skin, remove stems and seeds
1 teaspoon salt
Place all ingredients into a food processor and blend until salsa consistency. Occasionally, the salsa needs a little lime juice or agave syrup dependent on the flavor of the tomatillos. I did not use lime nor agave in my recipe this time.
SALSA VERDE AUSSIE GRASSFED GROUND BEEF FILLING
1 tablespoon canola oil
1 cup fresh corn, optional
1/2 medium onion, chopped
1/2 cup poblano pepper, chopped
1 pound Aussie Grassfed Ground Beef
1 teaspoon sea salt
1 teaspoon ground cumin, if desired, add more
1/2 to 1 cup A Merry Recipe Salsa Verde
1 package wonton skins
oil for frying, 1/2-inch canola oil in skillet, 350°F
1 cup guacamole or smashed salted avocado
4 ounces pepper jack or Monterey Jack Cheese, shredded
A Merry Recipe Salsa Verde
1 cup Sliced Tomatoes
Over medium-high heat, combine canola oil and corn; roast for about 4 minutes. Adjust heat to medium and add the onion and poblano pepper. Sauté until onion is translucent, about 5 minutes. Adjust heat to medium-high and add ground beef, salt, and cumin. Break up the meat with a spatula, and cook until beef has browned.
Add desired amount of Salsa Verde dependent on fattiness of ground meat. Aussie Grassfed Beef is super lean so I add 1 cup of salsa verde. Set filling aside.
Heat 1/2-inch oil to 350°F in a large skillet. Fry wontons in batches until golden, flipping each wonton one time. Spread guacamole over each crisp wonton and top with filling, cheese, salsa verde, and a tomato slice.
Yields: 36 wonton crisps
