Roasted Poblano Guacamole

INGREDIENTS 
GUACAMOLE:
6 garlic cloves, unpeeled
1 medium bell pepper
1 medium poblano pepper
1/4 cup finely chopped onion
2 tablespoons chopped cilantro
2 teaspoons lime juice
1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
1 ripe peeled avocado, seeded and coarsely mashed
CHIPS:
6 (6-inch) corn tortillas, each cut into 8 wedges
2 teaspoons lime juice
1/4 teaspoon kosher salt

DIRECTIONS

1. Preheat oven to 450°.
2.To prepare guacamole, wrap garlic cloves in foil; bake at 450° for 15 minutes or until soft. Preheat broiler. Allow garlic to cool slightly; remove skins. Place garlic in a medium bowl; mash with a fork.
3.Cut peppers in half lengthwise; discard seeds and membranes. Place pepper halves, skin sides up, on a foil-lined baking sheet; flatten with hand. Broil 15 minutes or until blackened, turning frequently. Remove peppers from oven, and place in a zip-top plastic bag, and seal. Reduce heat to 425°. Let peppers stand 10 minutes. Peel and finely chop. Add peppers, onions, and next 4 ingredients (through avocado) to mashed garlic; stir well.

4.To prepare chips, combine tortilla wedges, 2 teaspoons juice, and 1/4 teaspoon salt in a large bowl, tossing to coat. Arrange the tortillas in a single layer on a baking sheet coated with cooking spray. Bake at 425° for 10 minutes or until crisp and lightly browned, turning once. Cool 5 minutes. Serve with guacamole.

Enjoy!                                                               Luke 6:31
