Roasted Garlic, Poblano, and Red Pepper Guacamole

When storing this guacamole, press plastic wrap against its surface to help keep it from oxidizing and turning brown. You can use it to liven up a turkey sandwich or as a condiment in a vegetable wrap. If time is tight, you can serve the guacamole with store-bought baked tortilla chips.

Yield: 8 servings (serving size: 2 1/2 tablespoons guacamole and 6 chips)
