1 teaspoon extra-virgin olive oil, plus more for drizzling
1 large poblano pepper, coarsely chopped
2 avocados, peeled and pitted
One 15-ounce can chickpeas (about 1 1/2 cups), rinsed and drained
1/2 cup cilantro leaves, packed
1 small garlic clove
2 tablespoons freshly squeezed lemon juice
1/2 teaspoon Kosher salt
Freshly ground black pepper
2 tablespoons pepita seeds
How to Make It
In a saucepan over medium heat, add the olive oil and cook the poblanos until lightly browned in spots and softened, about 5 minutes. Remove from heat and set aside.
In the bowl of a food processor, combine the sautéed poblanos, avocados, chickpeas, 1/4 cup cilantro, garlic, lemon juice, salt, and pepper and process until combined and smooth. Scrape down the sides of the bowl. Taste to adjust for seasoning and transfer to a serving dish. Garnish with fresh cilantro and pepita seeds. Drizzle with olive oil and serve.
