I love fresh fruit but I sure don’t eat enough of it. I’m actually sort of picky about how the fruit looks and if it doesn’t look right to me, I won’t buy it. There are certain fruits that always look ok to me. Those fruits include hass avocados, bananas, peaches and pineapple. Strawberries are one of my favorite fruits but unfortunately, they just don’t taste good year round like some of the other fruits do. Luckily, I found a good pack of strawberries yesterday so I will be making a strawberry salad pretty soon. Don’t worry, you’ll see that on the blog soon.

The funny thing about strawberries is that I absolutely hated them until about three years ago. You see, when I was a kid, I loved strawberries. I loved them so much that I made myself sick from eating way too many of them. The mind does some funny things and for many years, my mind associated strawberries with a sick feeling so I didn’t eat them. Strawberry flavored ice cream, jams, smoothies, syrups, those were ok. Raw strawberries, nope. Forget about it. Luckily, I finally snapped out of that phase.

But enough about strawberries. Let’s get to peaches. I love adding hot peppers to recipes, especially chipotle peppers. So I put together this chipotle peach salsa to slather atop of some broiled fish. That recipe will come tomorrow but until then, enjoy this recipe!

    This sounds great with chicken, fish or just with tortilla chips. Love the addition of chipotle too.

      Thank you, Holly! This would probably be good on some pulled pork as well! Maybe make some hot pulled pork wraps and use this salsa in it!

    Wow, what a great salsa! I love the contrast of the sweet peaches and the spicy/smoky chipotle peppers. Looks delicious!

    I understand that sick feeling, I ate a whole box of Twinkies as a kid and never recovered! I love hot sweet together and I think chipotles and peaches are one of the best combinations!

    • Julie says

      Ah, I think eating a whole box of twinkies would make me sick too! Thanks so much for stopping by, Tanya!

    I love the idea of making a peach salsa! So different and unique, especially with a chipotle pepper. Gotta give this one a try –pinning! Thanks for sharing your recipe Julie.

    • Julie says

      LOL, that is funny! But chipotles do taste different. They are smokey whereas the plain ole jalapenos are well, just plain! But I do love jalapenos as well. :) Thanks so much for stopping by!

    Yum! I’ve never had peach salsa before, what a great idea. I am a huge fan of chipotle peppers! Great recipe Julie, I actually just made something similar but with pineapple. :) Great minds think alike.
