Preheat the oven to 500º. Drizzle the bell pepper, onion and garlic with one tablespoon of olive oil and place in a single layer on a baking sheet. Roast until the edges of the vegetables begin to blacken. Remove from the oven and let cool for 10 minutes.

Peel the garlic and add to a blender with the bell pepper, onion, olive oil, lime juice and zest, olives, cilantro, oregano and cumin. Season with salt and pepper and pulse until finely processed.
