Spicy Peach Salsa comes together with 6 simple ingredients. Bursting with sweet and spicy flavor, enjoy this salsa with tortilla chips or in tacos!
As I'm writing this towards the end of June, there's currently an excessive heat warning throughout the Dallas area. Sounds a bit dramatic but y'all it is HOT!
I can't be bothered to turn on the oven or fire up the grill. This fruit salsa is not only delicious, it's also refreshing! It pairs perfectly with my skinny margarita, ranch water, and even watermelon agua fresca.
While I can't wait for the cooler days ahead, I want to appreciate the abundance of fresh produce the summer brings. I always seem to accumulate a mountain of peaches towards the end of summer.
Why you'll love this recipe
- This recipe is my go-to when using up the last of my fresh peaches! It can easily be doubled to feed a crowd.
- The flavors of peaches, peppers, tomato, and onion all pair well when combined with lime juice and fresh cilantro.
- The texture can't be beat with a juicy bite from the peaches and tomato, plus the crunch from the bell pepper and onion.
- Last but not least, it's super easy to make!
Peaches: Fresh peaches are in season from June-August, making this the ultimate summer snack!
Jalapeños: Balance out the sweet peaches with a spicy kick from jalapenos.
Tomatoes: Adds juiciness, natural sweetness, plus a pop of color.
Bell Pepper: I recommend using red bell pepper as they’re the sweetness.
Onion: I’m using sweet onions from Texas, but red onion works well too.
Lime Juice: The citrus brings everything together!
Cilantro: Chop it up and sprinkle to garnish. If you're not a fan, leave it off.
Choosing the best peaches
Look for peaches that aren’t too hard or too soft. They should be plump, have a little give when you gently squeeze them, and smell fragrant.
How to Make
To make fresh peach salsa, prep all of the ingredients and toss them in a large mixing bowl. Stir everything together, and let chill in the fridge until ready to serve.
What to serve with peach salsa?
I enjoy eating this spicy peach salsa as an appetizer with tortilla chips. Try my homemade tortilla chips! It’s also delicious wrapped in your favorite tacos.
- Dice everything the same size for a perfect bite with every scoop.
- If you don't mind the skin, you don't have to peel the peaches. It’s personal preference!
- Want a spicer salsa? Use a serrano pepper instead of jalapeno.
- Want more fruit? Stir in chopped pineapple, mango, or cubed avocado.
- Let the summer salsa sit in the fridge to chill. I like to wait at least 2 hours for the flavors to all come together, but if you don’t have extra time, serve immediately.
- Store leftovers covered in the refrigerator for up to 3 days.
- Leftover salsa can get watery, simply drain the liquid before serving. It’s just the liquid released from the fruit.
