ingredients
2    medium  green sweet peppers
2    medium  fresh poblano chile peppers
1    bulb  garlic
1/2   teaspoon   olive oil
2    medium  ripe avocados, halved, seeded, peeled, and cut up
1    teaspoon   finely shredded lemon peel
2    tablespoons   lemon juice
1/2   teaspoon   salt
1/4   teaspoon   crushed red pepper
2      roma tomatoes, seeded and chopped
directions
Preheat oven to 425 degrees F. Line a 15x10x1-inch baking pan with foil; set aside. Quarter, stem, and seed the peppers.* Place pepper quarters, cut sides down, in the prepared pan. Cut off the top 1/2 inch of the garlic bulb to expose ends of individual cloves. Leaving garlic bulb whole, remove any loose, papery outer layers. Place bulb, cut end up, on a double thickness of foil. Drizzle with the oil. Bring foil up around bulb and fold edges together to loosely enclose. Place foil packet on the pan with the peppers.
Roast peppers and garlic for 20 to 30 minutes or until pepper skins are charred and garlic cloves feel soft. Bring foil up around pepper quarters and fold edges to enclose. Let stand about 15 minutes or until cool enough to handle. Using a sharp knife, gently pull skins off pepper pieces and discard. When garlic head is cool enough to handle, squeeze garlic paste out of the individual cloves.
In a food processor combine roasted pepper quarters and the garlic paste. Cover and process until nearly smooth. Add avocados, lemon peel, lemon juice, salt, and crushed red pepper. Cover and pulse with several on-off turns until mixture is slightly chunky, scraping sides of bowl as needed. Transfer to a serving bowl; stir in tomatoes. Serve immediately or cover the surface with plastic wrap and chill for up to 1 hour.
Tip
*Test Kitchen Tip:
Because chile peppers contain volatile oils that can burn your skin and eyes, avoid direct contact with them as much as possible. When working with chile peppers, wear plastic or rubber gloves. If your bare hands do touch the peppers, wash your hands and nails well with soap and warm water.
