Fresh Peach Salsa

This Fresh Peach Salsa is the perfect balance of sweet and spicy!

Fresh Peach Salsa

Hey guys! First off, I want to let you know about some exciting changes that are coming to the blog. I’ve decided to change the name of my blog from The Texas Peach to something that better reflects what my blog is all about. The new name will be Healthier Dishes.

I’ve already renamed my social media accounts, so if you follow me there, you may have noticed the change. Also in the works is a new blog design, which will be rolling out this week. I think it will be much easier to navigate the site and find recipes. The only thing that won’t change is my recipes. They will still be simple, healthy meals made with real food. I’m super excited about the new things coming and I hope you will be, too!

Ironically enough, I am posting my very first recipe using fresh peaches. Totally fitting, don’t you think? Ha! This Fresh Peach Salsa is so amazingly good! It’s the perfect combination of sweet and spicy.

You’ll want perfectly ripe peaches to make this salsa. Otherwise, it’ll just be really tart and not good at all. Here are some tips on how to pick a perfectly ripe peach.

Fresh Peach Salsa

The heat level of this peach salsa will vary depending on the jalapeño and whether you use some or all of the ribs and seeds. I left half of the seeds and ribs in from a large jalapeño, and it was muy caliente!

I leave the peel on the peaches when I make this. It looks prettier and you can’t even tell it’s there. Plus, you can skip the boiling and peeling step that some recipes call for. I’ve done it both ways, and since you can’t detect the peel when you take a bite, it’s worth skipping for me.

Roasted Tomatillo Salsa Recipe

Roasted Tomatillo Salsa

Up until this year, I had never purchased tomatillos before. The tomatillo salsas that I’d eaten were not my fave, and so I basically thought I just didn’t like them. Then, I made my Green Sauce, and that totally threw that idea out the window. Man, that sauce is good! If you haven’t made that one, get on it! […]

How to Roast Green Chiles

Bowl of Anaheim Chiles

Roasting my own green chiles is so easy I don’t know why I didn’t start doing it sooner. Every year during Hatch chile season, I love the smell of roasting peppers as I enter the grocery stores that roast them on-site. They really do smell amazingly good! Roasting them in the oven was almost just as good. I used Anaheim chile peppers, which are usually pretty mild in heat level. […]
