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.
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
1 lime juiced
1 generous handful of fresh cilantro leaves, chopped
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.
