I had a request for my Spicy Mango Salsa but when I went to the store the mangos we are hard. No ripe ones to be found. So I decided to switch it up a bit and make a peach salsa instead.
I was surprised how well it came out really. As soon as it sat for a hour in the fridge I grabbed a chip with some salsa and took it up to Seth for him to try it. I was lucky to bring back fingers and he followed me right back down the stairs like a bloodhound hot on the scent! When Kevin came home he looked a bit doubtful when I mentioned it had peaches in it. I know you are saying to yourself how in the world could anybody doubt me, I was thinking the same thing, great minds think alike! But once he tasted it his doubts went away.
Even Jessi, who doesn’t really like spicy things, liked it. She did mention that I could have left the peaches in a bigger dice, so I will take that under advice and give it a shot next time.
I wish I had taken pictures as I went but no one was here to help me. I really need to try and cook more with people around, either that or grow a second set of hands.
4 vine ripened tomatoes, seeded and chopped
1/2 large white onion, diced
3 or 4 Serrano chilies, finely chopped
3 ripe peaches, peeled and chopped
2 cloves garlic, minced

In a medium bowl, stir together the tomatoes, onion, chilies, peaches, garlic, lime juice, and cilantro. Add salt to taste. Cover and refrigerate for one hour so the flavors can meld.
