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!

    This looks amazing! I stumbled onto your blog today and I am loving it. I just subscribed. :) My won’t buy and always buy list is almost identical to yours. Although, making salsa is not on mine at all. I’m going to try it this year though.

  26. Stevieposted July 6, 2011 at 9:02 am Reply

    This salsa sounds sensational. I’ve made a fruit salsa using kiwi before, which sort of reminded me of food in Miami.

    It’s funny reading about the things that you never make and that you always do. I’m impressed that you make all your own jams and breads. We race through that stuff, so I’d be in the kitchen all the time!

    I agree with never making sush! I leave that to the experts who present gorgeous plates of sushi rolls adorned with artfully cut veggies and orchids lining my plate! It’s a whole eating experience that I have no desire to compete with or even try!! But for salsa, yes, of course, I’m all about the freshness and combining the flavors I like. This is a great recipe; so vibrant and healthy looking!!

    Sommer, what a perfect fruit salsa! I love all of your admissions on what you make and do not make, there are just not enough hours in the day to make everything….and I honestly don’t think I would ever want to make my own crackers….but for those that do, I am in awe!
    I have to try grilling the peaches next time I make a fruit salsa!

    I am so with you on the salty crackers, graham crackers, animal crackers and cheese. I do however love a roasted chicken and don’t think the store bought ones are as good. Never done turkey or quail though! This salsa looks awesome! Happy 4th!

    Awesome….thank goodness you came out and confessed…now I don’t feel so bad about not roasting my own chicken… or making my own sushi… or using ready made pizza dough….or… ;))

    our peppers haven’t started producing yet, and I refuse to give an arm and a leg for them, but I did just buy some organic peaches, so I’m going to take your cue & roast some to add some panache to a store-bought salsa. thanks for the idea, Spicy, and wish me luck!!
