Poblano Stuffed Tomatoes

Ingredients

  • 8 Campari tomatoes
  • 2 Poblano peppers
  • 1 avocado, pitted and peeled
  • 1/2 bunch cilantro, including stems
  • 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons fresh lime juice
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
  • 2 tablespoons toasted sunflower seeds

Method

Step 1

Rest the peppers on the grate of a gas stove. Turn the fire on medium and char the peppers, turning them with tongs, until evenly blackened and blistered, about 5 minutes. (Alternatively, you can roast the peppers over a gas grill or under the broiler.)

Step 2

Transfer the peppers to a bowl, cover with plastic wrap, and let steam. When cool enough to handle, rub off the charred skin and discard, along with the stems and seeds.

Step 3

While the peppers cool, slice off a little from the top and bottom of each tomato to create flat surfaces. Cut the tomatoes in half. Scoop out the seeds and discard.

Step 4

Transfer the peppers to a food processor, along with the avocado, cilantro, lime juice, and salt. Puree until very smooth.

Step 5

Transfer the puree to a zipper-top plastic bag and snip a hole in one corner. Pipe the avocado mixture into the tomato halves. Top with the sunflower seeds and serve.
