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. I have great 5 minute salsa , tomatillo salsa, and homemade chip recipes that I make ALL THE TIME!!! 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?
Today I am making homemade peach salsa. The sweetness of the peaches, mixed in with fresh cilantro, onion, garlic, lime, and peppers make an INCREDIBLE flavorful salsa.
I like to eat peach salsa straight up on some crunchy chips. However it makes a tasty healthy topping for fish and pork.
What ingredients do you need to make peach salsa?
To make this tasty peach salsa, you will need the following ingredients:
- peaches ( I suggest Seal the Season’s sliced frozen peaches or frozen peaches of your choice.)
- fresh tomatoes
- red bell pepper
- red onion
- fresh garlic
- brown sugar, chili powder, salt
Note: I use Seal the Seasons Frozen Peaches in this recipe. Seal the Seasons works with small local farms. The small farms harvest their produce at the ripest point. Seal the Seasons freezes their produce and sells them at your local grocery stores such as Harris Teeter, Food Lion, Lowes Foods, and Whole Foods.
This allows consumers to purchase local farms produce year round. It also allows family farms to make a reliable stream of income.
Did you know?
Most fruit bought outside of the fresh seasons are from other foreign countries. Since 2000, approximately 21 percent of small family farms have had to close down. Seal the Seasons strives to give local family farmers economical opportunities to help them stay open for business.
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 in Peach Salsa?
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.
How to Make Peach Salsa from Scratch

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.
How long will homemade salsa last?
Store homemade salsa in an air tight container. It will last 5-7 days in the refrigerator.
