Chipotle Peach Salsa

The perfect combination of sweet and spicy. The chiles add the spicy kick and the peaches calm down the heat. Since the chiles are seeded, the heat is tamed and adds just the right amount of zing in the back of your throat.

I have a recipe simmering in my head for salmon tacos. Sooner than later it will appear on the blog. I am thinking that this will be the salsa that accompanies them.

Open wide!

5 medium tomatoes, chopped
1 peach, peeled and diced
3/4 cup diced onion (red, yellow or white- whatever you have on hand)
1 lime, juiced
1/4 cup chopped cilantro
1 Serrano chile, seeded and minced
1 Tbsp minced Anaheim chile
2 chipotle chiles in adobo, seeded and minced
1 tsp adobo sauce (from the can of chipotles in adobo)
1 garlic clove, minced
1/2 tsp kosher salt

In a medium bowl, combine all ingredients. Stir well to combine. Pour salsa into the bowl of a food processor. Pulse 10-12 times. Serve immediately or cover and refrigerate.
