Ingredients

  • 2 poblano peppers
  • 3 large avocados halved, pitted, and cut into quarters
  • 1 jalapeño pepper seeded and roughly chopped
  • 3 cloves garlic chopped
  • 2 tsp honey optional
  • 1/2 cup fresh cilantro about one handful
  • 2 fresh limes juiced
  • 1/2 tsp kosher salt
  • 1/4 tsp black pepper
  • 1 - 3 Tbsp water start with 1, add more as needed

Instructions

Prepare

  • Preheat oven to 400°F.  Line a baking sheet with foil.

Roast poblanos

  • Add poblano peppers to baking sheet. Roast for about 20-25 minutes, turning the peppers over a few times, until evenly charred.
  • Remove peppers from oven, add to a bowl, cover with plastic wrap and let cool for about 10 minutes.  This helps loosen the skin.

Start the dip

  • To a food processor, add avocados, jalapeno, garlic, honey, cilantro, lime juice, salt, pepper, and water

Peel poblanos

  • Gently peel skin from the poblanos, and remove seeds and stems.  Roughly chop, and add to food processor.

Finish the dip

  • Pulse food processor several times, then process until smooth, scraping down the sides as necessary.
  • Serve immediately, as a dip or topping.

Notes

  1. Recipe makes between 1.5 - 2 cups, so however you portion that, that will be the number of servings.
  2. Recipe is easily doubled if you need a larger batch.
  3. The exact amount of water will vary, depending on the consistency you want the dip to be.
  4. Additional lime juice can be used instead of water.
