Preheat the oven to 350° F. Place the tomatoes, peppers, and jalapeños whole on a sheet pan and roast for 30 minutes. Remove from oven and peel off skins when cool. Add to a blender and blend on high until well mixed.
While the tomatoes and peppers are roasting, prepare the onion, avocados, and cilantro.
In a large skillet, heat olive oil over medium heat. Add onions and a pinch of salt and pepper to taste. Sauté for 4–5 minutes.
Mix tomato mixture, sautéed onions, avocados, and cilantro in a large bowl, adding more salt and pepper if needed. Serve immediately or refrigerate. Leave out the avocado if you plan to keep for more than three days.
