Fire Roasted Poblano Guacamole

Subtle depth of flavor and gentle smokiness from the peppers make this fire roasted poblano guacamole a step above the ordinary. Well balanced lime, garlic, cilantro, and of course the sultry silky avocados. Nom nom nom!

  • 3 each poblano peppers
  • 2 each ripe avocados
  • 1 each green zebra tomato (or other variety but the all green color is nice, 1 - 2 tomatillos would probably work as well)
  • 1/4 cup cilantro (plus more for garnish)
  • 2 each cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 tbsp onion, finely diced
  • 1/4 cup fresh squeezed lime juice
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp serrano pepper, finely diced (optional, adds a nice heat and color pop)


Fire Roasted Poblano Peppers

  • Get your grill nice and hot.
  • Cut the tops off the poblanos and take the seeds out of the middle.
  • Toss onto the hot grill. Grill about 1-2 minutes each side (3 sides... ish), until blistered and charred, about 5 minutes total. Remove from grill.

Poblano Guacamole

  • Add fire roasted poblano peppers to food processor, no need to remove skin. Halve, take the seed out, and scoop ripe avocados out of skin and add to food processor. Process for a little bit until chopped smaller (will be too thick to properly process).
  • Scrape down the sides and add tomato, cilantro, minced garlic, diced onion, olive oil, lime juice, and salt to food processor. Process until smooth. Taste and adjust lime/salt to your taste (can always start with less of each and add more... much harder to take it out!)


  • Spoon out guacamole into dish, sprinkle with a bit more cilantro and (optionally) the diced serrano peppers. Enjoy!


I may have a problem... I've been fire roasting EVERYTHING lately... luckily I'm okay with it! This goes great just with chips or sublime over my garlic lime grilled skirt steak!!!
