Southwest Grilled Chicken and Avocado Melts

yield4 portions

Even within the same variety, chiles can vary greatly in heat. If you like yours mild, pull out the inner membrane when seeding them; that's where a lot of the heat-producing capsaicin is concentrated.

What you will need

2 tablespoons vegetable oil, divided

4 Anaheim or poblano chiles

4 boned, skinned chicken breast halves (about 8 oz. each)

2 teaspoons ground cumin

1/2 teaspoon cayenne

1 teaspoon kosher salt

Lime wedges

1 avocado, peeled, pitted, and sliced

1 cup shredded jack cheese
