*Large avocados are recommended for this recipe. A large avocado averages about 8 ounces. If using smaller or larger size avocados adjust the quantity accordingly.
Fresh and roasted Hatch chiles are available seasonally in retail stores and sometimes can be found in the frozen vegetables section. When not available, Anaheim and poblano chiles work well for this salsa. To roast in the oven, preheat the oven to 400 F. Place the chiles on a foil-lined baking sheet and roast for 15 minutes. Turn the chiles and roast for another 15 minutes or until both sides of the chiles are quite charred. Remove from the oven and carefully fold up the edges of the foil to form a packet around the chiles, sealing in the steam. Let cool for about 10 minutes, then open the packet carefully. Peel and discard the thin charred skin of the chiles. Roasting can be done in advance; just cover and store peeled and seeded chiles in the refrigerator.
