Awesome Spicy Corn, Avocado Poblano Salsa

Submitted by: TIGERINTHAVILLE

Introduction

If you want a pretty health-conscious snack or side dish, pair with multigrain tortilla chips. Remember, you control how spicy it gets. Use no spicy chili peppers or get it as hot at as you want. I find serranos to cater my taste, but jalapenos, green or red chiles, or anything fresh will do! If you want a pretty health-conscious snack or side dish, pair with multigrain tortilla chips.

Ingredients

    3 tablespoons olive oil
    6 ears corn, silks and husks removed
    2 poblano chiles or 2 medium red bell peppers (wear gloves when handling chiles)
    1 medium sweet onion, halved
    Hot Pepper of your choice: I used 4 full Serrano peppers. But as far as gutting peppers and what type of peppers obviously determines the heat, so use what you like here, or omit it completely.

    1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro
    3 tablespoons lime juice
    3-4 tablespoons orange juice (fresh)
    1 teaspoons grated orange zest
    1/3 teaspoons salt
    1/2 teaspoon freshly-ground black pepper
    1 large avocado

Directions

1. Rub some of the oil over the corn, chiles, and onion.
2. Place a grill-rack directly above medium-high heat. Place the vegetables on the rack; cover and grill for 10 minutes, turning two or three times, until lightly charred.
3. Cut the kernels off the cobs, coarsely chop the onion, and place the corn and onion in a medium-sized bowl
4. Take the grilled poblano and steam in bowl an extra 5 or 10 minutes by placing it in a bowl with saran wrap over it. When the waxy film bubbles, peel it off. Remove the stems and seeds from the chiles, dice them, and add them to the bowl.
5. In a screw-top jar, combine the remaining olive oil (about 2.5 tbsp) with the cilantro, lime juice, orange juice, orange zest, salt, and pepper. Shake vigorously and pour the mixture over the vegetables.
6. Remove the pits and skins from the avocados, cut into 1/2-inch cubes, and add them to the bowl. Toss all ingredients toget
her. Refrigerate or leave at room temperature for 1 hour for the flavors to meld.
