Spicy Peach Salsa Recipe with Chipotle. A very special salsa for fresh peach season. The flavor is so addictive. Fresh tomatoes, juicy sweet peaches, sweet onion, cilantro and chipotle chiles. Everything you want in a robust salsa.
I received my case of Fresh Colorado Western Slope Peaches this week and have been enjoying every single sweet juicy peachy bite.
For those of you who aren’t familiar with the state of Colorado, we live on the Eastern side of the Rocky Mountains, referred to as the front range. Our Colorado peaches are grown in the western part of our state in the area of Palisade, Colorado near Grand Junction. The same area where our Colorado Wineries are located. We call this The Western Slope. And we call our peaches, Palisade peaches or Western Slope Peaches.
I call them “beyond exquisite”.
Hot days and cool nights give us exceptional fruit and some pretty decent wine if I don’t say so myself.
Every year, I purchase a case of these beautiful Colorado peaches. The orchard are so involved in our Colorado community and each year allow hundreds of non-profit organizations sell Peaches to raise money. Many school fundraisers are involved and I purchase my box from our local Highlands Ranch Rotary.
They arrive beautifully packaged and are always in tip-top shape. The peaches are so large, so juicy, so flavorful … I find them to be spectacular. And quality superior to those I find in the store. I simply think they’re handled more carefully.
So, when there’s only two of us, how on earth do I manage to use up all of those peaches? One of my favorite way is to make this Spicy Peach Salsa Recipe.
Recipe for Salmon with Peach Salsa
This peach salsa is not only delicious used as a typical salsa for dipping chips, but we love it over salmon fillets. The salmon fillets are simply seasoned with salt, pepper and smoked paprika. Roasted in the oven for 20 minutes at 400 degrees and you’ve got an easy and exciting main course salmon meal.
This peach salsa also works very well with pork. I grilled pork chops last night and served them topped with a spoonful of my peach salsa recipe. Delicious.
And of course, have some tortilla chips on hand. You’ll want to dip, dip and dip some more. And enjoy every beautiful fresh bite.
