Fire-Roasted Poblano Guacamole

The roasted poblanos give this guacamole a wonderful smoky flavor.  


2 poblano peppers

3 ripe avocados

1/2 onion. finelychopped (about 1/2 cup)

3 tbsp cilantro leaves, finely chopped

1 tbsp freshly squeezed lime juice

1 tsp kosher salt

1/2 tsp freshly ground black pepper

1 ripe tomato, diced


Place the poblano peppers directly onto the open flame of your stove.  Alternatively, if you do not have a gas stove, you can place them on a baking sheet under the broiler.  Using tongs, turn them every 2 to 3 minutes until they are fully charred and blistered all over, about 10 minutes total.

Once charred, place the peppers in a paper or plastic bag, close tightly and let them sweat and cool for about 20 minutes.  You should then be able to peel them very easily by using paper towels.  Once they are peeled, make a slit down the side of each pepper and remove and discard the cluster of seeds and veins.  Finely chop the poblanos.

To make the guacamole, cut the avocados in half, set the pits aside and scoop the avocado flesh into a mixing bowl. 

Using a fork or potato masher, mash the avocado.  Add the chopped poblanos, onion, cilantro, lime, salt and pepper and mix well.  Remmber that much of this is done to taste because of the variability in the fresh ingredients.  Start with this recipe and adjust the flavoring to your taste.  

At this stage you can place the avocado pits on top of the guacamole and cover with plstic wrap pressed down on the surface to prevent oxidation, and refrigerate.  Add the diced tomato just before serving.
