peachy amaziness

After putting away the groceries on Saturday I noticed a lot of canned fruit in our cabinet. Three cans of peaches to be exact. And we don't really eat canned fruit. Not sure how we acquired these. Since we didn't want them to go to waste, we contemplated how to use them and we found this amazing recipe:

Peachy Avocado Salsa:

  • 1 (15 ounce) can sliced peaches, drained and diced

  • 1 medium ripe avocado, diced

  • 1 tablespoon lime juice

  • 2 cups diced, seeded tomato

  • 1/4 cup diced onion

  • 2 tablespoons minced fresh cilantro or parsley

  • 1 tablespoon cider vinegar

  • 1 teaspoon seeded chopped jalapeno pepper*

  • 1 garlic clove, minced

  • 1/4 teaspoon salt

  • In a bowl, combine the peaches, avocado and lime juice. Add the remaining ingredients; lightly toss just until combined. Refrigerate for at least 30 minutes.

    It was amazing!! We made chicken fajitas and topped them off with this yummy salsa! It would also be great with fish too, maybe Mahi Mahi. mmmm. Perfect way to use up some of the canned peaches!
