Peachy Mexican Salsa

Use this quick recipe to flavor all sorts of dishes, from meats (try baking chicken breasts in it) to multi-ingredient Mexican entrees (like tacos, taco salad, enchiladas, and quesadillas).

Ingredients:

  • 1 large, ripe tomatoes
  • 1/4 cup sweet onion
  • 1 large peach
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro
  • 3 tablespoons canned, diced green chilies
  • 2 teaspoons distilled white vinegar
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 1 clove garlic, pressed or minced (or 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder)
  • Freshly ground pepper

Preparation:
1. Dice the tomato, peach, onion, and cilantro into chunks using a knife. Put them in a blender or small food processor.
2. Add the chilies, vinegar, salt, garlic or garlic powder, and pepper to the blender, and pulse briefly to blend. Pour into a serving bowl. Cover and keep in refrigerator until needed.

NOTE: If you don't have a blender or food processor, dice all the ingredients into the smallest pieces possible, place in medium bowl, and stir to blend well.

Yield:
10 servings, 1/4 cup each (2 1/2 cups of salsa)
