In a medium bowl using a fork, coarsely mash the avocados. Stir in the onion and lime juice and season with the salt. Cover with plastic wrap, placing the wrap directly on the surface of the guacamole to prevent it from browning, and refrigerate until about 1 hour before serving.

Grill the chile peppers over direct heat, with the lid open, until the skins are blackened and blistered all over, 10 to 15 minutes, turning occasionally. (The goal is to char the skins quickly so that you can peel them without the chile peppers collapsing. You will need chile peppers with enough structure, even when roasted, to hold the filling.) Place the chile peppers in a large bowl, cover with plastic wrap and let them steam for about 10 minutes. Gently peel and discard the skin from the chile peppers. Leaving the stems intact, carefully cut a slit down one side of each chile to make a pocket and remove and discard the seeds and veins. If you rinse the chile peppers, pat them completely dry with paper towels.
In a medium bowl combine the cheeses and mix together with a fork. Carefully stuff the mixture into the chile cavities. Brush the chile peppers with olive oil.
Grill the stuffed chile peppers, seam-side up, over indirect medium heat, with the lid closed, until the cheese melts, 6 to 8 minutes. Gently remove them from the grill with a spatula. Serve warm with the salsa and guacamole.
