Watch how to make peach salsa
I am a HUGE salsa and chips girl. If I could just eat the chips and salsa at my favorite Mexican restaurants as a meal, I totally would.....
We never stop at one basket of chips when we do eat out.
I love making homemade chips and salsa at home. This peach salsa is one of my favorites.
When cranberries are in season, I make a tasty cranberry salsa also!
All of these would be great with a side of fresh guacamole! Don't you think?

How long will homemade salsa last?
Store homemade salsa in an air tight container. It will last 5-7 days in the refrigerator.
Why use frozen peaches?
You can buy frozen peaches year round regardless of the seasons. Frozen peaches are frozen at their ripest point.
They are less work to work with because they are already cleaned and peeled.
They are easier to chop frozen because of their firmness.
Frozen peaches are also cheaper than fresh.... Win, Win! Right?
Will frozen peaches become soggy?
Frozen Peaches will not become soggy in peach salsa.
I chop them first before the other ingredients, then set them aside.
By the time I have finished chopping the other ingredients, the peaches are typically thawed.
I remove any extra liquid, then mix the peaches in with the remaining peach salsa ingredients.
Can You Use Fresh Peaches?
You can use fresh peaches. Be sure to use really ripe peaches.
You will need to peel them before dicing.
You can also used canned peaches, but they will not be as good as using fresh or frozen peaches.
They will also have a much softer texture. I don't recommend the canned peaches personally.
Tip: It is important to seed your tomatoes. This prevents your Peach Salsa from becoming too watery. To seed your tomatoes, slice them in half. Then scoop out all of the seeds and tomato filling with a spoon.
