4 (3-ounce) hoagie rolls, split
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 cup vertically sliced yellow onion
1 cup thinly sliced red bell pepper
1 cup thinly sliced poblano chile
3 garlic cloves, thinly sliced
1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
1 (8-ounce) container plain hummus

1. Preheat broiler to high.
