Here starts the true confessions segment… There are foods I make from scratch and foods I buy pre-made.

I never make sushi, I always buy it. I know, I know… It’s easy to make. Yet that doesn’t stop me from wanting someone else to roll it for me.

I almost never make ribs. Takeout ribs from our favorite local barbecue joint are so darn good!

I do not make my own salty crackers, graham crackers, or animal crackers. Although I’m very impressed by people who do. I have favorite boxed brands, and just don’t have the time required.

I never ever roast a chicken. Grocery store rotisserie chickens all the way, baby.

Turkey? Yes.

Quail? Yes.

Chicken? No.

Perfect Grilled Chipotle Peach Salsa Recipe

Whew! Now that that’s over, there are things others buy pre-made that I try my best to always make from scratch. I guess we all have our foods we’re particular about.

  • Stock
  • Jam
  • Bread
  • Pies
  • SALSA!

This time of year, when there is fresh produce in-season everywhere I look, I’ve got to make the most of it.

Grilled Chipotle Peach Salsa is the perfect place to start. It’s a dip, it’s a sauce, heck who am I kidding… I eat it right out of the jar with a spoon.

Grilling peaches releases their natural sweetness and adds a smokey essence. Grilled peaches are amazing on there own, but combined with charred garden veggies and spicy heat, they really shine.

Making Grilled Chipotle Peach Salsa Recipe

The trick to perfect grilled peaches is to use firm, yet ripe peaches. Grill them just long enough to create char marks and loosen up the juices. You do not want them to get mushy.

The same principle goes for the peppers and shallots. The char marks on the grilled peaches, shallots and peppers add flavor and visual appeal.

Grilled Chipotle Peach Salsa mingles sweet poppy notes, spice, and herbs together, making simple summertime dishes sing!

Try Grilled Chipotle Peach Salsa over protein like grilled chicken, fish, or steak. Use it as a topper for smooth creamy soups. Or on a cheese board with ripe creamy cheese… Heaven.

Grilled Peach Chipotle Salsa gives common garden fair a little summertime Va-va-VOOM!

    Peaches grilled are one of my favorite summer foods! We make this thickened balsamic reduction stuff on the stove to pour on them, and heaven is achieved. :) I did a little happy dance in my chair because this not only sounds delicious, but there are not tomatoes in sight! I am allergic to those little red balls and cannot have most salsas.
    Thanks for the fun recipe!
