Whew, it’s been quite the week. If you hadn’t heard why, you can read about it HERE on Menu Plan Monday. Kels is doing a lot better and was released from the hospital yesterday afternoon. We are so happy she’s home. I forgot how much I hate hospitals. I guess, everyone probably does. I am SO grateful for Doctors and nurses, though. The ones that took care of Kelsey were so wonderful, caring and amazing. I am trying to think of a gift to bring them to say Thank You. If you have any good ideas let me know. 🙂
Now let’s get to a funner topic- CINCO DE MAYO! Any holiday that lets me eat all the Mexican food is a great holiday in my book. haha! With how stressful this past week has been I am so ready to dig in to some comforting Mexican food tomorrow. One thing I know I’ll be making for it is this CHUNKY PEACH SALSA! It is so delicious and such a fun twist on ordinary salsa. Diced fresh peaches with tomatoes, jalapeños, onion and cilantro are all inside this amazingness. You just can’t go wrong with this delicious salsa. I can’t wait to top it over our Honey Lime Chicken Enchiladas and dip about 10,000 tortilla chips in it. I’ll be counting down the hours until tomorrow. 😉
Just a quick FYI! I could not find any fresh peaches at our grocery store. (Maybe because it’s not peach season yet. ha!) So I used canned diced peaches. Don’t judge!! 😉 The salsa was still so incredible and flavorful. If you have fresh peaches by all means use them. If not, the canned works wonders!
- 1½ pounds peaches, diced (if you can't find fresh you can use canned diced peaches, drained)
- 1 pound tomatoes (about 3 large), diced
- 1 jalapeño, seeded and finely diced
- 1 small yellow onion, finely diced
- ½ bunch cilantro, chopped
- 2 Tablespoons fresh lime juice
- 1½ teaspoons salt
- ¼ teaspoon black pepper
- Place diced peaches, diced tomatoes, jalapeño, onion and cilantro in a large bowl. Gently stir to combine.
- Squeeze the fresh lime juice over the top and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Gently stir again to combine. Cover tightly with lid or saran wrap and place salsa in fridge for at least 2 hours to let flavors blend.
- Serve with tortilla chips or over any Mexican food, chicken or beef!
