Green Chili and Avocado Sauce

I stumbled upon this recipe this past summer while it was still grilling season - the theory is that you can stick all of these items on a skewer, and grill it with whatever else you are making, then you can blend it up and serve it all together. Of course, living in Minnesota means that the grilling season is a lot shorter - so I brought this one indoors and just used a frying pan with grates.

1 avocado
1 small onion, quartered
2 tomatillos, halved
4 peeled garlic cloves
1 jalapeno, seeded
1 poblano pepper - I used an anaheim, just in case the picture below throws you off (it was all the grocery store had).
splash of lime juice
salt and pepper
2 tablespoons water
1 tablespoon olive oil
Cilantro to taste

Slice everything up, and throw them on the grill - or in a grill pan. Once everything is slightly charred, toss into a blender with the water, lime juice, cilantro, salt and pepper. Blend it up, and serve with just about anything - grilled chicken, tacos, fajitas, etc. Or the dish I'm posting in the morning! :-)
